Harvard's Solar Geoengineering Research Program: Might research on solar geoengineering resemble its broader “free-driver” dynamics?

"It’s called “re-search” for a reason. You search, you search, and you search again. It also means that researchers will naturally tackle the low-hanging fruits first. Unearthing the harder bits just takes time. That’s the natural flow of things, and solar geoengineering research is unlikely to be different."

Intelligencesquaredus: Engineering Solar Radiation Is a Crazy Idea (Video)

"Geoengineering is an ambitious set of experiments proposed by scientists to help mitigate the effects of climate change. And one type in particular, called solar geoengineering, has been the subject of debate. This process involves, among other techniques, injecting reflective particles into the stratosphere to reduce the amount of sun and heat that reaches the planet."

Business Insider Malaysia: Longshot presidential candidate Andrew Yang thinks rogue geoengineering could cause a war

"Andrew Yang, a longshot Democratic candidate campaigning on a platform of universal basic income, Medicare for all, and “human-centered capitalism,” believes ramping up clean energy use and curbing carbon emissions isn’t enough. He wants the US to take the lead on geoengineering – an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of controversial and not-so-controversial techniques to counteract climate change, not just slow it down. "

Clean Technica: Chevron’s Fig Leaf Part 1: Carbon Engineering Burns Natural Gas To Capture Carbon From The Air

"Recently headlines announced a $68 million dollar investment in a company that is building air-carbon capture technology. Headlines claimed it could scoop CO2 from the air we breath economically. Hyperbole, like ‘magic bullet’, was spread liberally around. The threshold number of $100 per ton of CO2 was bandied about."
