Truth Dig: More Reflectivity Can Cool the World

„Engineering reflectivity can be a way to protect human safety during dangerous heat waves. In baking rural regions, put off plowing those[nbsp]freshly harvested wheat fields. And in sweltering cities, paint houses white, install shiny roofs and plant pale-leafed tree species. In a word,[nbsp]increase reflectivity. Bounce more sunlight back into space to save[nbsp]lives, tempers and energy costs. This would, in effect, constitute local geoengineering—without the unimaginable costs of[nbsp]spraying aerosols into the stratosphere[nbsp]or placing solar reflectors in orbit; and without unwelcome side effects.“
