Ecosystem Translocation: The latest Climate Engineering Brainstorm

Guest essay by Eric Worrall Stéphane Boyer, senior lecturer at UNITEC Institute of Technology is worried that plants and animals can’t move fast enough to survive climate change. His solution: give nature a helping hand, by digging up entire ecosystems, and moving them hundreds of miles, to maintain optimum climatic conditions. Climate change threatens entire…

#AGU15 Accidental Geoengineering? Airline traffic may help create an icy haze that’s brightening U.S. skies

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA —The data just didn’t seem to make sense. That’s often the story right before scientists make a leap in understanding. In this case, scientists had some evidence that skies in the continental United States have been brightening, after several decades of so-called “dimming.” Brightening and dimming are overly simplified words that signify…

Nutty claim: Advent of geoengineering may help lower temperature of debate over climate change

From Yale University and the “we had to burn the village to save it” department: Geoengineering, an emerging technology aimed at counteracting the effects of human-caused climate change, also has the potential to counteract political polarization over global warming, according to a new study. Published Feb. 9 in the journal Annals of the American Academy…

Study: Climate engineering can’t erase climate change

The idea that climate engineering can’t really do anything is well founded, the idea that we MUST do something, not so much. This looks like another press release timed to fit discussion of Obama’s war on energy. – Anthony From Simon Fraser University: Tinkering with climate change through climate engineering isn’t going to help us…

Study: ‘Climate Engineering’: minor potential to reduce warming, major side effects

GEOMAR researchers show limitations and side effects of large-scale climate intervention With global greenhouse gas emissions continuing to increase proposals to limit the effects of climate change through the large-scale manipulation of the Earth system are increasingly being discussed. Researchers at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel have now studied with computer simulations…
