As the global climate change catastrophe gets worse and worse, engineering a more favorable planet with environmentally-altering technologies often seems like a good plan B. But geoengineering...
The way things are going, it looks like developed nations around the world won’t reduce their consumption of fossil fuels enough to prevent the worst impacts of global climate change. To help...
Geoengineering The former chief scientific adviser to the U.K. government, David King, is launching a new research center to investigate how to re-engineer the planet to prevent or reduce the worst...
Easy Does It If we want to prevent the worst effects of global climate change, we probably need to stop burning fossil fuels. But in the meantime, many look to technological solutions like...
Climate Report A new study in the journal Science has found that the Earth’s oceans are warming far faster than experts had previously predicted, leading to a bleak outlook among climate scientists...
Sum of the Particles The long-term outlook on climate change is bleak. Last month, a United Nations report found that the international community’s current efforts are unlikely to stave off...
GETTING HANDS-ON. Think geoengineering is a great way to reverse the effects of climate change? Well, we might want to push pause on those plans. According to a study published Wednesday in the...
Solar geoengineering could buy us some extra time to address carbon levels in our atmosphere. But it could also have grave consequences for the planet’s regional climates and biodiversity.
Geoengineering, the technical alteration of the Earth’s climate, may offer some solutions to the perils of climate change. But the debate over whether it would be effective, or even advisable, has...
Living longer forces us, as a society, to come up with a solution for the problems that could compromise our future, as they are now decidedly our problems.
