A controversial American businessman dumped around 100 tonnes of iron sulphate into the Pacific Ocean as part of a geoengineering scheme off the west coast of Canada in July, a Guardian investigation can reveal. Lawyers, ...

According to technological optimists, in the next two or three decades, humanity will embark on a new era of possibility. Super-smart computers and other advances may even make certain types of less risky, large-scale climate actions a reality. ...

WHAT HAPPENS if humans fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions enough to prevent worsening climate change? A new report from the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences contemplates some very unattractive -- but potentially ...

Using the weather as a weapon to subjugate the globe sounds like the modus operandi of a James Bond villain, but a senior climate scientist has expressed concern over the US intelligence services’ apparent interest in ...   
16/2/2015
Senior US climate scientist Professor Alan Robock, from Rutgers University in New Jersey, has expressed concern the geoengineering, manipulating the climate, could be used as a weapon in the future. Geoengineering involves manipulating ...   
15/2/2015
Efforts to reduce emissions of climate-disrupting greenhouse gases are moving at a pace that is, well, glacial. Human activity continues to spew tens of billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the air every year. And even though a bone-chilling ...   
15/2/2015
The CIA is worried that a foreign power may develop the ability to manipulate the global climate in way that cannot be detected, a leading climatologist has claimed. Consultants working for the Central Intelligence Agency have asked ...   
15/2/2015
US scientists and legal experts are calling for a strong, international authority to regulate any man-made interventions meant to combat global warming, amid fears that the technology could be harmful to the environment. The field known ...   
15/2/2015
Scientists are so concerned about global warming that they're now calling for tests to find ways to cool the planet -- the first step toward exploration of a highly controversial field that sounds like science fiction. "Geoengineering," ...   
11/2/2015
It could be the plot of a science-fiction thriller: fertilize the ocean with iron to suck up coral-killing carbon dioxide or seed the skies with tiny droplets to block the sun’s rays. In a report released Tuesday, a National Academy of ...   
10/2/2015
Developing the technology to suck planet-warming carbon dioxide back out of the atmosphere is an expensive but promising approach that may be necessary to help prevent the worst effects of climate change, according to the first of two reports ...   
10/2/2015
Fifty years ago, the idea of reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the earth to address climate change officially entered the scientific and political vernacular. That concept has since been lumped under the banner of geoengineering with other ...   
10/2/2015
Sure, we can fight the effects of climate change by cleaning the emissions from cars and putting scrubbers on the smokestacks of power plants. But doesn't a massive problem require a big solution like, say, spraying sulfur dioxide into the ...   
10/2/2015
Climate change has advanced so rapidly that the time has come to look at options for a planetary-scale intervention, the National Academy of Science said on Tuesday. But it was categorical that such ‘geoengineering’ should not currently be ...

Climate ChangeIn Geoengineering Study, Science Academy Sees Merit in CO2 Removal, Risk in Reflecting SunlightBy Andrew C. Revkin February 10, 2015 11:00 am February 10, 2015 11:00 amPhotoGlobal warming might be slowed by ...   
7/2/2015
Here’s a word guaranteed to start an argument among scientists and environmental activists: geoengineering. The word covers a variety of hypothetical technological fixes for the problem of climate change. For example, tiny particles of ...   
2/2/2015
Is abrupt climate change already here? There are some serious scientists who believe it is already here. If their analysis is correct, the world could turn nearly uninhabitable within current lifetimes. In that regard, the ...   
30/1/2015
As we watch the new GOP-controlled Congress clash over the Keystone XL pipeline, it’s rather depressing to realize that this is just the beginning of the pitched, drag-out battles to come over climate change in the next two years. Even ...   
13/12/2014
A global deal to combat climate change lurches toward reality in Lima, Peru, this week--and yet any politically feasible agreement will be insufficient to restrain continued warming of global average temperatures, perhaps uncomfortably high. ...   
12/12/2014
IN 1990 John Latham, a cloud physicist, published a short article in Nature under the headline “Control of Global Warming?” It argued that if low-lying maritime clouds were made a bit brighter, the Earth could be cooled enough to make up for the ...   
2/12/2014
The deliberate, large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climate system is not a “quick fix” for global warming, according to the findings of the UK’s first publicly funded studies on geoengineering. The results of three projects – IAGP, ...   
30/11/2014
Geoengineering—which sometimes seems to be the despairing climate scientist’s Plan B—simply won’t work. It won’t offer a quick fix to the planet’s burden of global warming, and it will be difficult to convince anybody that it could work at ...

Geoengineering – which sometimes seems to be the despairing climate scientist’s Plan B – simply won’t work. It won’t offer a quick fix to the planet’s burden of global warming, and it will be difficult to convince anybody that it could ...   
26/11/2014
Fighting global warming by reflecting sunlight back into space risks “terrifying” consequences including droughts and conflicts, according to three major new analyses of the promise and perils of geoengineering. But research into deliberately ...   
17/11/2014
If you thought there was a machine that could magically remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and bury it underground, would you be less likely to worry about reducing your own carbon footprint? The question is not entirely ...
