This article seeks to critique the discussion of the role of public deliberation in climate geoengineering governance, with a focus on the approach taken by the US National Academy of Sciences in its major reports on geoengineering, released in February of 2015. The article suggests that the NAS's dedication to public deliberation was insufficient. It also proffers some potential options to strengthen the role of public deliberation in climate geoengineering governance.
