One journalist has called it, “A bad idea whose time has come,” but Canadian scientist Dr. David Keith, Professor of Public Policy and Applied Physics and Engineering at Harvard University, thinks it may be more than that.
Dr. Keith is one of a small group of researchers studying techniques for climate engineering, or geoengineering.
This is the controversial idea that we intentionally use climate-altering pollution to offset the warming that our greenhouse gas pollution is causing.
Dr. Keith acknowledges the risks and potentially serious side-effects of geoengineering, but in the face of the larger risks of a warming climate, he suggests in his new book that there is A Case for Climate Engineering.
