NewEnergyNews: A Real World Test Of GeoEngineering

Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    A Real World Test Of GeoEngineering

    Can hacking the planet ward off climate change?

    Kathleen Ellison, March 25, 2018 (San Francisco Chronicle)

    “…[Silicon Valley engineer Leslie Field] hopes to gather global support [and $1 billion in annual funding] over the next few years to ultimately cover more than 19,000 square miles of sea ice — an area about the size of Costa Rica — with a thin coating of tiny floating silica spheres, which she says will help reduce the world’s rising temperatures…[The emerging field of geoengineering] envisions large-scale efforts to fight climate change by directly manipulating the natural environment…Field’s privately funded Ice911 project is a small player. Under the Trump administration, these eclectic, messianic and mostly untested projects have been gaining unprecedented momentum…While denying climate change is a human-caused problem and rejecting proposals to cut greenhouse gases, they’re promoting what some experts worry is the risky solution of geoengineering…The increasing interest in geoengineering, including from climate skeptics, owes partly to growing pessimism about humanity’s capacity — and will — to ward off the worst effects of climate change without some major technological breakthrough…” click here for more
