Proposal: Research must be governed by an academic panel reporting to the Security Council Contest: Geoengineering 2014 Thank you for your contest entry, Research must be governed by an academic panel reporting to the Security Council. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas, and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the
. As your entry did not sufficiently address some of the revisions the Judges were hoping to see, we did not advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.” We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

This is definitely a reasonable position and I think that I could be convinced that the UN specifically would be the best body to exercise that control, but we simply cannot advance your proposal without additional detail. If you have an interest in geoengineering governance, though, I encourage you to dig deeper into the question of UN involvement to see how such a system would work and whether it would be a good idea.
