ever stopped abruptly, it would be devastating.
During the last three years, China has assembled one of the largest federally funded geoengineering
research programs in the world, marking another area where it's forging ahead of other nations on climate matters.
Summary: By pushing unproven technologies as a cure for all climate-change ills, proponents are suggesting the world faces an unavoidable choice: geoengineering
Offsetting the effect of greenhouse gas emissions is a complicated science called geoengineering
Keith, "Toward a Responsible Solar Geoengineering
Research Program," and Jane C.
Aided by a balloon, next year they will sprinkle small quantities of tiny molecules into the stratosphere over Arizona in order to test humanity's last resort in a rapidly warming world--solar geoengineering
And they fear that geoengineering
could get out of control and have unintended consequences.
So society should pursue geoengineering
as a supplementary way to crank down Earth's thermostat.
That industrial civilizations have altered the Earth and its atmosphere for the worse is beyond doubt, but geoengineering
offers possible solutions, using human engineering to improve the climate.
Taking direction from Clark's (2013, Geoengineering
and geologic politics.
the deliberate use of technology to manipulate the environment could be the last resort in fighting climate change
