Envirotidings: Geo-engineering the climate: Possible remedy or colossal catastrophe?

„The application of geo-engineering as a proposed solution to climate change must be exercised with caution, as it can have numerous damaging and unknown consequences. In a desperate effort to produce innovative ideas to combat climate change, scientists are proposing solutions that range from practical to colossally extreme in their impacts. […] It appears that rather than promoting solutions on smaller scales, such as at the individual and community levels, a number of scientists are looking to engage in grand solutions that appear promising, but can in fact be disastrous. Doug Parr, chief scientist for Greenpeace UK, strengthens this argument by saying that: “the scientific community is becoming so scared of our collective inability to tackle climate emissions that such outlandish schemes are being considered for serious study.”“
