Where We’re At With Geoengineering

PEOPLE tend to have strong opinions about geoengineering – large-scale manipulation of the environment to counteract global warming.

These opinions are often highly polarised and,

thanks

in part

to media coverage,

usually focus on two extremes.

On the one hand,

there is the view that geoengineering is the quick-and-easy fix to all of our climate troubles;

on the other,

we find a picture of mad scientists destroying the world.

Unfortunately,

both narratives have marketable traction.
