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.
Climate change experts argue for international geoengineering effort
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.
The future of the Earth could rest on potentially dangerous and unproven geoengineering technologies unless emissions of carbon dioxide can be greatly reduced, a new study has found.
Hot on the heels of the Royal Society's Geoengineering the Climate report, September's Physics World contains feature comment from UK experts stressing the need to start taking geoengineering â€“ deliberate interventions in the climate system to counteract man-made global warming â€“ more seriously.
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...
