Discover some geo-engineering techniques that scientists are developing to manipulate Earth's climate. What are they and how would they work?
- Geo-engineering strives to use technology to manipulate climate and combat global warming.
- Reflective lenses in space could reduce global warming.
- Spraying sea salt particles to make clouds thicker could help in cooling the planet.
- Rocketing sulphur into the atmosphere could act as a cooling device, but also cause bad side effects.
Geo-engineering strives to advance futuristic techniques that manipulate Earth's climate, and combat global warming.
Solar Radiation Management
One plan involves putting trillions of tiny reflective lenses into space to reduce the amount of sunlight reaching – and warming – the Earth's surface.
By reflecting light away from the Earth, the ...
