Record #167715:

A mirror to cool the world / Fred Pearce.

Title: A mirror to cool the world / Fred Pearce.
Author(s): Pearce, Fred.
Date: 2004.
In: New Scientist. (2004.), Vol. 181(2440) (2004)
Abstract: Reports January 2004 meeting in Cambridge, UK, exploring technologies to combat global warming. Meeting prompted by concerns of "political dithering" around Kyoto Protocol and possibility of climate change much more rapid than climate models have predicted. Technologies aim at either capturing and storing CO₂ emissions, e.g., in salt domes, oil wells or deep ocean, or blocking/reflecting some incident solar radiation. Latter group include giant mirror in space, millions of tiny aluminium balloons, or increasing cloud reflectivity by seeding (e.g., flinging salt spray from sea into air). One suggestion for CO₂ sequestration is injection beneath West Antarctic ice shelves. Points out some potential dangers and reports reaction from scientific/technical community.
