One of these methods is known as geoengineering, or the deliberate mass manipulation of the climate.
The controversial science is being touted as a potential "backup plan" should humanity fail to lower carbon emissions by two degrees.
This backup plan will now receive $4 million in funding, according to David Fahey, director of the Chemical Sciences Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL).
E&E News first reported that Fahey told his staff that the U.S. government is ready to study two types of geoengineering.
Fahey says an upcoming study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine titled "Climate Intervention - Strategies that Reflect Sunlight to Cool Earth" will recommend further studies in both areas.
He also suggests changing the term geoengineering to a,
Fahey called geoengineering a,
Still, Fahey admits that putting aerosols into the atmosphere,
Science Magazine notes that several smaller nations have already expressed concern that,
Alan Robock, a climate and aerosols expert at Rutgers University who previously conducted research for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has said that researchers claiming that there will be no significant effect do not take into account the reality that geoengineering may have additional side effects, like,
In 2015, while speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Robock stated he was phoned by two men claiming to be from the CIA, asking whether or not it was possible for hostile governments to use geoengineering, or mass manipulation of the weather, 'against' the United States.
The public and scientific community should examine all of the available evidence which currently shows geoengineering might lead to potential,
According to a recent study (Estimating global agricultural effects of geoengineering using volcanic eruptions) published in Nature, geoengineering could lead to lower crop yields...
This study is not the first to draw attention to the dangers of beginning geoengineering programs.
According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres, if geoengineering programs were started and then suddenly halted, the planet could see an immediate rise in temperatures, particularly over land.
Another study published in February 2015 by an international committee of scientists stated that geoengineering techniques are not a viable alternative to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to combat the effects of climate change.
The committee report called for further research and understanding of various geoengineering techniques, including carbon dioxide removal schemes and solar-radiation management (SRM), before implementation.
The scientists found that SRM techniques are likely to present,
The calls for geoengineering programs are one step closer to reality now that the NOAA is scheduled to receive $4 million in funding. The closer geoengineering moves to reality the more calls for a global governance framework to guide the programs.
It's becoming apparent that calls for geoengineering will serve as a gateway to global government...
