Geoengineering a solution to volcano-induced atmospheric cooling – Experts respond

Laura Goodall posted in on November 7th, 2014.

A rather unorthodox geoengineering study has examined the potential for greenhouse gases to play a positive role in humanity’s future… if  a giant volcanic ash cloud created a global winter by blocking out the sun. The paper, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, examined the potential for short-lived greenhouse gases to be used to […]

Exploring the side effects of geoengineering – experts respond

Dacia Herbulock posted in on February 26th, 2014.

Technological fixes to combat harmful effects of climate change — even if employed on a massive scale — will be ineffective in the face of ever-increasing greenhouse gas emissions, new research suggests. A study from German researchers published this week in Nature Communications found no more than an 8% reduction in warming could result from […]
