That means a United Nations estimate for sea rise, considered among the most conservative,...

Geoengineering has been a topic on the fringe of climate discussions for more than a decade, but itâ€™s been edging ever closer to the mainstream as carbon pollution rises. Itâ€™s slated to take a step closer still later this year, with a group of Harvard scientists planning a small scale experiment. Their test will redirect the sunâ€™s rays back into space as part of a larger research program aimed at understanding the benefits and risks of geoengineering the planet to have a cooler climate. In the next year, scientists plan to spray reflective particles high in the Earth's stratosphere as part of a new geoengineering experiment.
