Geoengineering Won't Save Our Crops

Discover Magazine - Wed 8 Aug 18

If we broke it, then we can probably fix it, too. That's the logic behind geoengineering, the broadly-defined set of techniques proposed to artificially reverse climate change. The most popular ...

Global dimming may mitigate warming, but could hurt crop yields

ScienceNews - Wed 8 Aug 18

Injecting a veil of tiny particles into the atmosphere might reduce global warming, but it could also lower crop yields.

Geoengineering method found wanting

Cosmos Magazine - Wed 8 Aug 18
