"Overshooting warming targets will irreversibly impact vulnerable communities and fragile ecosystems. While greenhouse gas emissions reductions should remain our top priority, we must prepare for additional approaches, possibly including sunlight reflection methods, which carry their own risks. We do not have the regulatory instruments to ensure responsible, transparent, and legally permissible research and deployment of such technologies. The independent Climate Overshoot Commission will address the critical gap of governance, and promote inclusive and science-based decision making."
