The planet remade

Oliver Morton

Why I looked at this book

Global warming is seen as a looming problem - but what is the best way to deal with it? Some would say that reducing greenhouse gases is the only option, but geoengineering offers a possible alternative. Is this reasonable? On the one hand tinkering with the earth's climate may lead to worse problems. On the other, if global warming is as bad as it seems then surely we shouldn't ignore any way of dealing with it. I'm hoping this book will help me better understand this dilemma.

First impressions

In the introduction Morton jumps straight in with arguments that global warming is a serious problem, and that cutting greenhouse gases is far from a simple task. Hence geoengineering may be the best option. So far it is well argued, so I'm interested to see what suggestions for geoengineering Morton thinks are practicable.
