Although a number of authorities have warned about the dangers of geoengineering techniques, the risks are seen as secondary to the perceived risks of climate change. The interesting thing to note is that although proponents of geoengineering hail it as the solution to climate change and sustaining life, studies show that geoengineering could actually have the reverse effect of heating the Earth.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, if geoengineering programs were started and then suddenly halted the planet could see an immediate rise in temperatures, particularly over land. The study, titled “The impact of abrupt suspension of solar radiation management”, seems to indicate that once you begin geoengineering you cannot suspend the programs without causing the very problem you were seeking to resolve.
Pressing Refresh Notes:
“the risks are seen as secondary to the perceived risks of climate change”
So, just because some people think we should not just learn to adapt to climate change, we should spray crap for eternity? Seriously?
We should be more worried about companies and factories that spew chemicals/poisons into the air,water, land and people than perceived risk of carbon and climate change.
I think the new craze over carbon and climate change is another created crisis to have us focus on that and not the immediate health hazards they are creating.
Sure, climate change is real, and man is not helping, I just happen to think there are more immediate dangers we should focus on.
