This is geoengineering on a scale we've never seen.
We may be able to halt climate change by hacking the environment.
The plant, located in Hellisheiði, Iceland, not only produces no emissions — it technically produces negative emissions.
Scientists agree that soon we'll need to start capturing and storing emissions.
Humanity’s big problem may require bold action.
The eruption brought on night during the day and city-flooding rains.
Could mimicking volcanic eruptions or "seeding" clouds delay Earth's destruction?
Researchers think they can replicate the atmospheric cooling that follows a volcanic eruption.
Climate change has been on the radar for more than 20 years, but complete solutions remain elusive. Some scientists are considering geoengineering, the act of making compensatory changes to the Earth’s climate to reverse the damage that has already been done.
Predicting the future is a fool’s errand—after all, who could have imagined the internet fifty years ago, and the many ways it’s upended commerce, finance, the workplace, and all those seemingly immutable mainstays of yesteryear. Still, someone’s got to do it: here’s our look at some technological innovations coming down the pike.
