Could An Artificial Climate Save Us From Climate Change? In this ‘Climate Briefing – Creating Artificial Climates’ article we see the world’s leading climate scientists preparing contingency plans to engineer the Earth’s recovery.
This is a hugely controversial area with many saying that we cannot ‘play God’ and play with the biosphere of the Earth. On the flip side we have scientists wanting to step forward to progress research and development in the area of geoengineering.
No matter what, the fact is that we need to look to a solution to global warming and all of them need to be considered in a balanced and scientific context that respects the fragility of the atmosphere, rainforests, fauna and flora, and human civilization that inhabit this planet.
Take a look at these three fascinating videos that shine a light on current geo-engineering research and aim to weigh up the risks and responsibilities around this area. We start with a NASA lecture that acts as a great primer to global warming and ideas around geoengineering.
