Discovery News: Messing With Nature to Stop Warming: Too Risky?

„That’s why a small cadre of scientists are pressing harder for radical geoengineering solutions — such as[nbsp]spraying particles at high altitude to mimic the cooling effect of volcanoes, or tinkering with clouds to alter how they reflect solar radiation. In a just-published article[nbsp]in the prestigious scientific journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, geoengineering advocates discuss what would be the first series of field trials for what they term “solar radiation management–that is, reducing the heating effect of the sun’s rays, without modifying the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.“
