• If we start deliberately cooling the Earth, we may not be able to stop

    28 days ago - By The Verge

    Blasting aerosols into the sky to reverse climate change seems like an exciting proposition, but it may be too dangerous to attempt: If we try and then suddenly halt this form of geoengineering, it could cause more damage than climate change itself, according to new research.
    Global warming is a pressing problem, and some scientists believe that sending a plane to spray sulfate aerosols into the sky will help cool down the Earth. In a study published today in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution , researchers used models to predict what would happen if we sprayed the aerosols for 50...

    Seeding the atmosphere with sulfur could keep temperature from rising-but once we stop, the backlash could destroy entire species.

  • Climate engineering, once started, would have severe impacts if stopped

    29 days ago - By Phys.org

    Facing a climate crisis, we may someday spray sulfur dioxide into the upper atmosphere to form a cloud that cools the Earth, but suddenly stopping the spraying would have a severe global impact on animals and plants, according to the first study on the potential biological impacts of geoengineering, or climate intervention.
