P roposals for research on geoengineer-ing methods to offset greenhouse-gas– driven climate change have attracted controversy (1– 6). Multiple methods have been proposed (7), but attention and controversy have centered on methods to reduce incoming sunlight—for example, spreading refl ective aerosols in the stratosphere or spraying condensation nuclei to increase low ocean clouds (1, 2). Such high-leverage interventions offer the dual prospect of large benefi ts and harms. They may reduce… CONTINUE READING
