Can We Hack the Climate? Should We? Geoengineering and International Security with Dr. Beth Chalecki
Humanity is inadvertently changing the climate with our use of fossil fuels, and the effects range from severe droughts and deadly storms to agricultural failures and a melting Arctic. Mitigation agreements have been unsuccessful so far, with the repeated failure of international treaties like Paris and Kyoto. Adaptation will be necessary, but will cost possibly trillions of dollars and cause the dislocation of millions of people. What if we had a third path? Can we fix the problem with technology?
