Enter center stage geoengineering, a hitherto black sheep of the fight against global warming.
Geoengineering is a broadly encompassing term with a few close etymological cousins—namely climate engineering and climate change mitigation—along with a sizable stable of associated technologies. Some of themlargely lifted restrictions on businesses and small gatherings ove, like afforestation and ocean iron fertilization, fall under the umbrella of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) in that they seek to draw down carbon dioxide from the atmosphereOntario opens COVID-19 vaccine bookings to hot-spot residents 18 and older; Canada to receive 2M vaccine doses this week. But these are techniques that would in all likelihood shift the climate change needle relatively slowly.
In comparison, technologies under the rubric of?solar radiation management?(SRM) are expected to work on a much faster timescale, and as a consequence, generate arguably the greater buzz. Solar engineering is the idea that humankind artificially limits how much sunlight and heat are permitted in the atmosphere, and includes the?thinning of high-level cirrus clouds?to help infrared rays more easily escape upward, along with the brightening of?low-level marine clouds?to help reflect sunlight back into space.
