Geoengineering is no climate solution, say EU-funded scientists

Scientists participating in an EU-funded project have issued a warning against geo-engineering, a process which seeks to mitigate environmental problems through changes in the environment itself.

The researchers, who took part on the Implications and Risks of Engineering Solar Radiation to Limit Climate Change project, said they found that the impact of geoengineering is likely to be more dangerous than the problems it seeks to solve. Geoengineering proposals include feeding aerosols into the atmosphere and fertilising oceans, as well as more conventional strategies, such as increased tree planting.
