Bangor Daily News: Geoengineering could be our last chance to stop an Arctic thaw

"Very reluctantly, Hunt would now be willing to consider putting an aerosol (probably sulfur dioxide) into the stratosphere over the Arctic Ocean to reflect enough incoming sunlight to hold the local temperature down."

Yang, Huiyi; et al. (2020): South India projected to be susceptible to high future groundnut failure rates for future climate change and geo-engineered scenarios

Yang, Huiyi; Dobbie, Steven; Ramirez-Villegas, Julian; Chen, Bing; Qiu, Shaojun; Ghosh, Sat; Challinor, Andy (2020): South India projected to be susceptible to high future groundnut failure rates for future climate change and geo-engineered scenarios. In The Science of the Total Environment 747, p. 141240. DOI: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.141240.

"With an increase in global mean temperature predicted for this century accompanied by more frequent extremes, will farming communities need to brace for increased crop failures and hardship? Solar dimming climate geoengineering has been proposed as a possible solution to combat rising global temperature but what effect will it or other climate related adaptation have on crop failures? We performed a crop modelling study using future climate and geoengineering projections to investigate these questions."
