Mail Online: As scientists ponder "hacking the climate," poor countries are wary

"Such "geoengineering" proposals include large-scale, controversial projects that aim to dim sunlight or capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The proposals - some of which sound like science fiction - are for the most part still in early stages of testing. But campaigners say poor countries might, once again, suffer the most devastating consequences if some of the technologies are used."

New24: Climate-disrupting volcanoes helped topple ancient Egypt: study

"The findings, the authors said, also highlight the risk today of climate engineering schemes that would combat global warming by injecting billions of tiny particles into the stratosphere - just like a volcano - to block some of the sun's rays. Even if so-called solar radiation management lowers the planet's temperature a notch or two, it could inadvertently cause major disruptions in rainfall patterns. "Ptolemaic vulnerability to volcanic eruptions offers a caution for all monsoon-dependent agriculture regions," which today include 70% of the world's population, the authors wrote."
