How can research into geoengineering be governed to limit its environmental and political risks?
Assuming geoengineering research is going to be pursued, how can it be governed or regulated to limit its environmental and political risks, and to contribute to effective overall management of climate change and its impacts? Lack of effective political action on climate change has led some scientists, chemists and engineers to investigate technical and technological options to counter the effects of increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These strategies are collectively known as geoengineering or geoengineering methods, and could result in far-reaching global and regional impacts. This contest seeks proposals on how to progress research on geoengineering in an ethically and environmentally responsible manner. Click here for contest details
- Marine BECCS
Marine Bioenergy with Carbon Capture/Sequestration addresses multiple climate change issues emphasizing the prod. of carbon negative fuels.
Control Alt Delete Climate Change, Solution and Governance of such an idea
The question about rising sea levels is not IF but rather WHEN. With my idea we would be able to stop the sea from rising; saving millions.
Natural Milling and Delivery of Olivine
Olivine pieces up to a few cm can be dropped into the mill to weather it down to rounded shapes and small sizes without energy costs.
Responsoble Geoengineering – the only way to go global.
Creating a research framework that would place clear definitions and guidelines in the field of geoengineering.
Aviation chemtrails: Aerosol influence on clouds (Cloud Albedo Effect)
Implement a conversion chain: aviation fuel to contrail to chemtrail to cloud formation to cloud albedo to planet cooling.
Use a low cost method to build a planetary solar shield
This the least expensive method for managing solar radiation that I could think of.
