Princeton University: Wolovick: Geoengineering polar glaciers to slow sea-level rise

"Targeted geoengineering to preserve continental ice sheets deserves serious research and investment, argues an international team of researchers in a Comment published March 14 in the journal Nature. Without intervention, by 2100 most large coastal cities will face sea levels that are more than three feet higher than they are currently."

Science Alert: These Totally Wild Plans Could Be Our Last Chance to Prevent a Melting Glacier Catastrophe

"In Game of Thrones, the men of the Night's Watch defend the Wall: a towering structure designed to safeguard civilisation from unseen forces lurking in the frozen wilderness. In the real world, an equally vast, impenetrable barrier could save us from a fate no less catastrophic, scientists say – not because winter is coming, but for the exact opposite reason."

Clean Technica: Geoengineering — Reducing The Power Of Hurricanes With Curtains Of Air Bubbles

"There are those who say we can “science our way out” of climate change. Many of us are skeptical of such claims because we don’t know what the consequences of fiddling with the environment might be. Scientists at SINTEF, the The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research in Trondheim, Norway, have an idea for how to prevent hurricanes from forming or reducing the power of those that do form. The secret? Air bubbles."

Clean Technica: Scientists Propose Geoengineering Projects To Control Rising Sea Levels

"If you don’t believe in climate science, then everything is rosy. We can just continue doing what we have been doing and everything will be fine. Most of us who participate in the CleanTechnica community believe the world is warming, that human activity is largely responsible for the increase in global average temperatures, and that we have a duty to mitigate the changes those higher temperatures will cause. Part of those mitigation strategies may include targeted geoengineering projects to protect against rising sea levels."

Space Ref: Table Salt May Offer Geo-Engineering Option for Climate Change

"Common table salt might prove effective in reflecting sunlight and mitigating rising temperatures leading to climate change. How does this happen? Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Robert M. Nelson will explain the details during a briefing today at the 49th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas."
