Summary
Geoengineering is the deliberate manipulation of the environment in an attempt to counteract the harmful effects of human-influenced climate change. It's intended as a solution, but it also can create unintended consequences. When scientists and political leaders can't even agree on the extent of climate change, it can seem hopeless to think they will come together to work on solutions. This enlightening resource offers perspectives from experts in the field today, making clear why this topic attracts such controversy and what can be done in the future to help our planet--
