C2G2: As US Congress debates geoengineering, mitigation is priority

„The US House’s Subcommittees on Environment and Energy will hold a hearing on geoengineering, and specifically look into research on a branch of technologies known as solar geoengineering, or solar radiation management. It is not yet clear what will come of the Washington hearings, nor is it clear to what extent they will acknowledge the human causes of climate change. [nbsp]I am concerned, however, that some may latch on to the idea of solar geoengineering as an alternative to greenhouse gases reduction. That would be wrong, and dangerous.“
