GREENBELT, Md., April 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the midst of seemingly unending questions about climate change, a new book by Claire L. Parkinson, a world-renowned climate scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., can provide some answers.
WASHINGTON, March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Asilomar International Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies held last week in Pacific Grove, CA concluded a week of conversations and discussions on climate intervention and guidelines for research and experimentation. The Conference, held at the Asilomar Conference Center, began on March 22 and ended on March 26th.
Computer models show how skyborne seawater particles change cloud brightness, temperature, rain patterns.
Pumping nutrient-rich water up from the deep ocean to boost algal growth in sunlit surface waters and draw carbon dioxide down from the atmosphere has been touted as a way of ameliorating global warming.
Climate change experts argue for international geoengineering effort
Global warming may impair the ability of ecosystems to perform vital services -- such as providing food, clean water and carbon sequestration -- says the nation's largest organization of ecological scientists.
While governments around the world continue to explore strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, a new study suggests policymakers should focus on what needs to be achieved in the next 40 years in order to keep long-term options viable for avoiding dangerous levels of warming.
Climate experts say geo-engineers are exploring radical new ways to combat Earthâ€™s climate crisis, including fertilizing the seas with iron, scattering particles in the stratosphere to reflect sunlight or building a sunshade in space.
A knowledge gap exists in the area of climate research: for decades, scientists have been asking themselves whether, and to what extent man-made aerosols, that is, dust particles suspended in the atmosphere, enlarge the cloud cover and thus curb climate warming.
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...
