Scientists May Be Able To Stop Global Warming With A Giant Sunshade

When we’re out in the sun it’s nice to be able to sit in the shade to cool off.  And now scientists have figured out a way to create a giant sunshade in the sky to cool off our planet.  If it works it could be a solution to global warming.

It sounds like a futurist novel plot, but the future is here now.  The new technique being explored by scientists all over the world — from Harvard to Bangladesh — is called solar geoengineering.

In layman’s terms, solar geoengineering involves 

using balloons or jets, to create a man made atmospheric sunshade that would protect the most vulnerable countries against the negative impacts of global warming. read more
