Special thanks to Brad Hall, Alex Lamballe, and Dan Myers for their helpful comments. ∗∗ Professor and Victor and Carol Alvarez Fellow in Law, University of Iowa College of Law. I am grateful to Sam Perlmutter for his research assistance and helpful comments on this paper. This article would not have been written at all, however, but for the example of Professor Burns H. Weston, whose career-long commitment to human rights and social justice is celebrated in this issue of Transnational Law and Contemporary Problems. Elsewhere in this issue I offer some brief comments on Weston’s remarkable career. I wish only to add here that his ceaseless commitment to ensuring that the human rights dimensions of problems are always within the scope of the discussion provided the inspiration for this Article’s attempt to consider how international norms can lead to a system of geoengineering governance in which justice and equity play a central role.
