Of all the factors that influence Earth's changing climate, the effect that tiny particles in Earth's atmosphere called aerosols have on clouds is the least well understood.
Tinkering with climate change through climate engineering isn't going to help us get around what we have to do says a new report authored by researchers at six universities, including Simon Fraser University.

With the expansion of the HERO program into Orange County and soon Los Angeles County, Chandler’s Roofing has become a registered HERO Program contractor, providing additional financing resources
A new study shows that soybean plants can be redesigned to increase crop yields while requiring less water and helping to offset greenhouse gas warming. The study is the first to demonstrate that a major food crop can be modified to meet multiple goals at the same time.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory report they have found that volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet.
A proposed mitigation technique which involves spewing sulfur particles into the atmosphere could help combat climate change – but if stopped after being implemented, it could worsen the problem, University of Washington researchers warn.
Terraforming -- Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") is the process of modifying a planet, moon or other body to a more habitable atmosphere, temperature or ecology. The term was first used in a science fiction novel, 'Seetee Shock' (1940?) by Jack Williamson, but the actual concept is older than that. An example in fiction is 'First and Last Men' by Olaf Stapledon in which Venus is modified, after a long and destructive war with the original inhabitants, who naturally object to the...
