Latest Stratospheric sulfate aerosols Stories
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.
A special issue of the journal Climate Change, titled “Geoengineering Research and its Limitations,” addresses these technologies, as well as barriers, ethics and regulations.
A cost analysis of the technologies needed to transport materials into the stratosphere to reduce the amount of sunlight hitting Earth and therefore reduce the effects of global climate change has shown that they are both feasible and affordable.
