The melting of Greenland, West Antarctic ice sheets, Arctic sea ice and Siberian permafrost has caused a rapid shift in international climate debate. A growing number of leading scientists and governments are now seriously discussing and planning various emergency measures, or geoengineering solutions.
Many of the proposed schemes are almost as dangerous as the warming itself, and might actually lead to the end of the world as we know it. Safer and cheaper methods exist, but they have not received as much attention as the "mad scientist" solutions.
66 Ways to Absorb Carbon and Improve the Earth's Reflectivity is the first book that presents the whole range of existing geoengineering proposals and analyzes the dangers and benefits of each scheme. It also covers a wide range of less known ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
