Clean Technica: New Computer Modeling Helps Scientists Analyze The Effects Of Geoengineering

"In a study funded by DARPA and the National Science Foundation, scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Cornell University have developed a highly sophisticated atmospheric computer model that helps them understand how the sulfur dioxide from Mount Pinatubo  interacted with earth’s atmosphere."

Warren Centre: Geoengineering surfaces in climate technology debate

"Geoengineering was raised last week in US Congressional hearings in Washington and at a technical conference in Boston.  Academics earnestly developing solar reflection technologies warn that their progress may be overstated by US politicians and traditional energy companies seeking to avoid disturbing the US fossil fuel industry.  Harvard solar geoengineer Prof David Keith warned that “the very idea of this technology will be exploited by those who wish to block emissions cuts as a way to sow confusion.”"

Science Daily: Green roofs to reduce the effects of climate change

On Herrera-Gomez, Sergio S.; et al. (2017). "It would be necessary to have between 207 and 740 hectares of green roofs in a city like Seville (Spain), depending on the scenario that is contemplated, to reduce the effects of climate change in relation to the maximum temperature rises of between 1.5 and 6 ºC that are estimated by the end of the century. This would require between 11 and 40 percent of the buildings in the city. "

DESMOG: Climate Denier Lamar Smith Holds Rare Congressional Hearing on Geoengineering

"Ironically, the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is chaired by U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith — a climate science denier who has received tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from ExxonMobil throughout his political career. In fact, Smith actually mentioned “climate change” in his opening remarks for the hearing, in discussing his interest in geoengineering."

Dissident Voice: Hidden Dangers Lurking Behind the Scenes at Congressional Hearings on Cloud Seeding

"Of course, it almost goes without saying, how in the world is it possible, even remotely possible, to hold hearings about combating global warming by a Congress that has so steadfastly failed to recognize it in the first instance. They’re deniers! Aren’t they? Why are they worried about climate change all of a sudden? From an outside observer’s viewpoint, it’s kinda like watching the worst episode of The Twilight Zone, over and over, again and again, until a migraine splits one’s head wide open."
