New algorithms make it possible for scientists to predict the effect of injecting sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to cool the planet. Is that a good thing?
Climate scientists have been predicting more intense seasonal temperature variations and storms for several years now and recent winter ice storms in the deep south of the US, as well … [Read full article]
In a spot aired this afternoon called “Geoengineers: Who will rule the climate?” the world’s third largest radio station, Voice of Russia, seems to be wobbling on whether or not … [Read full article]
I’d like to be / under the sea / in an octopus’s garden/ in the shade Well, we may never get to live out Ringo’s maritime fantasy, but we can … [Read full article]
The cost of geoengineering the climate is considerable, but it’s considerably less than the cost of climate mitigation (and not to forget the time it takes to get everyone to … [Read full article]
Geoengineering has been a hot topic over the past little while and into this mix has come a new study looking at the possibility of using solar geoengineering to … [Read full article]
[UPDATED: Oct. 18, 2012; see below] Geoengineering theories and experiments have received much attention in recent years, with one recent experiment in “ocean (iron) fertilization” successfully conducted off the coast … [Read full article]
The earth is in a tail spin when it comes to climate change and finding an effective solution, unfortunately this is not an easy task. Emission control is one way, but effectively implementing it on a global scale takes quite some time. Also getting all countries on board, well that’s another problem. Now a handful of billionaires, including Bill Gates are funding some of the leading scientists to lobby governments and international bodies to back experiments into manipulating the climate on a global scale to help prevent climate change.
Any attempt to geoengineer our way out of the climate warming mess we’ve found ourselves in is going to take a massive balancing act of sea level rise and surface … [Read full article]
In the constant interplay between Humans and Nature, everything is a trade-off. As our scientists begin to consider an intervention approach to climate change and conducting large-scale experiments, this trade-off … [Read full article]
Sun dimming, also known extravagantly as “solar radiation management projects,” are the attempt to reduce the amount of sunlight making its way to the Earth’s surface by placing something in … [Read full article]
Rising sea levels? No problem, let’s just do some massive geoengineering. Hmm, not so fast.. h/t Climate Denial Crock of the Week
Yes, first of all, by stabilize we don’t mean keep it exactly the same — that is impossible. We mean not pumping it so full of CO2 that we see … [Read full article]
