Study: Geoengineering, other technologies won’t solve climate woes

Solutions such as geoengineering will not make enough of a difference. By Steinar Brandslet The countries of the world still need to cut their carbon dioxide emissions to reach the Paris Agreement’s climate targets. Relying on tree planting and alternative technological “We can’t rely on geoengineering to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement,” says…

Claim: Climate Geo-engineering Might Exacerbate Malaria

Guest essay by Eric Worrall Geo-engineering is worse than we thought. Not only would geo-engineering depress crop yields by starving plants of sunlight, it now looks likely any serious attempt to geo-engineer the climate might exacerbate the spread of Malaria. Now is the time to answer questions about climate engineering disease impacts Date: September 28,…

Climate Geoengineering Oops: Injecting Sulphates Into the Stratosphere To Reflect Sunlight Would Starve Crops of Sunlight

Guest essay by Eric Worrall I guess we should be grateful that this time someone noticed the problems BEFORE creating another climate policy driven global food shortage. Dimming sunlight to slow global warming may harm crop yields: study Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent OSLO (Reuters) – Spraying a veil of sun-dimming chemicals high above the Earth…

Latest nutty Geoengineering idea: Salt the atmosphere

An idea so bad, even Michael Mann realizes it’s a stinker. Sprinkling large amounts of salt into the atmosphere could stave off climate change, a group of researchers has proposed. They’ve suggested that, because salt is highly reflective, it could potentially reflect sunlight back into outer space, helping to cool the Earth, they wrote in a…

Claim: Deep Fat Friers Are Cooling the Planet

Guest essay by Eric Worrall According to British researchers, droplets of oil from deep fat friers are measurably contributing to a vast, cooling cloud over big cities, helping to mitigate the damaged caused by global warming; though more research is required to confirm this effect. Deep fat fryers may help form cooling clouds By Matt…

Study: Artificially cooling the planet is a ‘risky strategy’ – may create worse storms

From the UNIVERSITY OF EXETER Proposals to reduce the effects of global warming by imitating volcanic eruptions could have a devastating effect on global regions prone to either tumultuous storms or prolonged drought, new research has shown. Geoengineering – the intentional manipulation of the climate to counter the effect of global warming by injecting aerosols artificially…

Luxury Maine Geoengineering Climate Conference

Guest essay by Eric Worrall One hundred scientists gathered late last month in a luxury ski resort in Maine to discuss Geoengineering. To Stop Global Warming, Should Humanity Dim the Sky? The world’s top geoengineering researchers met off the record to discuss the possibility in Maine last month. ROBINSON MEYER AUG 7, 2017 Late last…
