Anthropocene Magazine: Here’s what localized geoengineering might look like

"If we retrofit our cities and change the way we farm, we could deflect the sun’s heat to dramatically reduce temperature extremes, a Nature Geoscience study finds. By adding white roofs and reflective pavements in cities, planting crops whose leaves reflect the sun more, and reducing tilling in agricultural areas, we could see global temperatures dipping by an estimated 0.7 °C. And at regional scales, those reductions are much more dramatic: across individual continents, smarter land use would reduce daily temperature extremes by up to 3 °C."
