Yesterday, The Economist posted an amazing video: "Climate change technology; is shading the earth too risky?" discussing the concept and controversy behind the emerging field. I highly encourage watching the video for more details, but here are some highlights:
In 2021, a research test was canceled in fear of the mindset that might be inspired in large, carbon-intensive industries regarding CO2 reduction efforts in the face of a successful trial.
By slowing research, the academic community has yet to fully grasp the efficacy and downstream effects of this technology.
Does this technology appear to you as promising or threatening?
Can you imagine the implications of equity in choosing to, or NOT to, implement this technology as part of the total climate change solution?
Happy Friday, Happy Earthday!
