27. Will Geoengineering Save Us?


In this episode, Mexie explores what geoengineering can (and can’t) provide in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation. She outlines various options in the two main geoengineering categories: Carbon Dioxide Removal (removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere) and Solar Radiation Management (reducing the amount of solar radiation that hits the earth’s surface). The options in the first category are safer than the options in the latter, however each comes with serious risk. Geoengineering has been gaining traction with the release of the latest IPCC report, but could a geoengineered world be even more dystopian than a 4-6C temperature increase?
