Geoengineering Research Now!

A draft statement posted this week by the American Meteorological Society says that research into purposeful geoengineering of the climate should be pursued now. It's the first such statement by a major science group and will be voted on for approval after public comment this summer.

Geoengineering could conceivably offer targeted and fast-acting options to reduce acute climate impacts and provide strategies of last resort if abrupt, catastrophic, or otherwise unacceptable climate change impacts become unavoidable by other means.
