Contents: Preface; International Governance of Geoengineering; Opening Statement by Chairman Bart Gordon, before the Committee on Science & Technology, U.S. House of Representatives, "Geoengineering: Assessing the Implications of Large-Scale .   Geoengineering is defined by the Oxford Geoengineering Program as “the deliberate large-scale intervention in the Earth’s natural systems to counteract climate change.” There are two main types. One is shading the earth from solar radiation, of which the shroud of sulphates in the stratosphere is emerging as the quickest, most effective.

    This group is a fast-growing team of researchers working at the intersection of climate science and technology with a focus on the science and public policy of solar geoengineering under the leadership of David Keith, Professor of Applied Physics at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. Geoengineering is the idea of applying planetary engineering to Earth. This can be traced to the early years of the Cold War, when scientists in both the United States and the Soviet Union devoted considerable funds to controlling the weather as part of their military strategy. Some early geoengineering proposals included the damming of the.

      These are the technologies of geoengineering—and as Oliver Morton argues in this visionary book, it would be as irresponsible to ignore them as it would be foolish to see them as a simple solution to the problem. The Planet Remade explores the history, politics, and cutting-edge science of geoengineering. Morton weighs both the promise and. The possibility of using geoengineering—the deliberate manipulation of the plan-etary environment—to counteract anthropogenic climate change is deeply con-troversial. At least in name, geoengineering has largely been ignored in recent climate assessments (1,2). Under close examination, however, the distinction be-File Size: KB.

Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading The Planet Remade: How Geoengineering Could Change the by: "A vital book on geoengineering."—Andrew Revkin, Dot Earth, New York Times "Few science books are more important, timely, and beautifully written [The Planet Remade] is a book that lays out all the facts, with great clarity and at some length, draws a conclusion, but leaves you to make up your mind."—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "[I]f you are going to read one book on.

Geoengineering proposals were first developed in the middle of the 20th century. Relying on technologies developed during World War II, such proposals were designed to alter weather systems in order to obtain more favourable climate conditions on a regional scale.

Recent geoengineering proposals have principally been methods to tackle human-induced climate change by either removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (e.g. using ocean iron fertilization) or by managing solar radiation (e.g.

by using mirrors in space) in order to negate the net. Geoengineering has 1, members. Describing and discussing geoengineering developments and related topics, in particular methods that could help combat.

CAMBRIDGE – Negotiations on geoengineering technologies ended in deadlock at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, last week, when a Swiss-backed proposal to commission an expert UN panel on the subject was withdrawn amid disagreements over language.

This is a shame, because the world needs open debate about novel ways to. Morton wants these key changes to be debated openly and inspected rigorously. Geoengineering is essential to take on board these crucial changes. He says: ' the planet has been remade, is being remade, will be remade'.

His book is an attempt to make us imagine the challenge those changes will bring/5(43). The book explains geoengineering’s past, its revival in the mids, and its future prospects including its shadow presence in the Paris climate accord.
