Could Geo-Engineering Solve all our Climate Fears?

Gio-engineering a.k.a climate engineering is the study of how to manipulate the planets climate to counter act the effect of global warming. This video describes various strategies to achieve this, from dispersing the suns rays with trillions of space based lenses, to creating denser clouds to reflect the suns heat. These suggestions could seriously help reverse global warming, but many people are worried about the impact on the global climate that any form of manipulation might have, and whether it could make the situation worse for many people.

My first reaction to schemes for geo-engineering? uhm…isn’t that what got us into this problem in the first place?

Mike MacCracken, formerly of Livermore Lab, and an advisor to this series, interviewed above.

Mike leaves the door open to some of the possibilities.

My nightmare is, someone like China decides to do this, unilaterally. They blow sulfates up in the air. China gets cooler – but…it stops raining in the American grainbelt. ooops, then what?

Or, a new hair-raising possibility that was raised in a recent chat I sat in on with some very well informed experts.

Since there is currently no law or regulation concerning climate manipulations, say… an eccentric billionaire, one with a deep interest in climate change, the best of intentions,  and great faith in techno-fixes, signs off on a plan to spend 10, 20, or 50 billion dollars on one of the many schemes, and boom, makes it happen – with completely unpredictable results…

Sounds like there’s a screenplay in that for somebody.
