Study Finds That Large-Scale Geoengineering Projects Could Disrupt Global Rainfall
Geoengineering is the deliberate large-scale engineering and manipulation of the environment to combat or counteract anthropogenic changes in atmospheric chemistry. It has long been touted as a way to counter the catastrophic effects of global warming, but has been considered dangerous by some as it interferes with the world’s delicate ecosystems. This week, such fears gained the support of scientists from four European countries who believe that large scale engineering projects could radically reduce rainfall in Europe and North America.
