Geoengineering is Just a Partial Solution to Fight Climate Change

The technology’s regional impacts depend on how much greenhouse gas emissions are reduced.

Rutgers University in New Jersey issued a press release describing research by ACOM scientists Simone Tilmes, Mike Mills, and co-author Alan Robock, a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. The paper "Reaching 1.5 and 2.0 °C global surface temperature targets using stratospheric aerosol geoengineering" was published in Earth System Dynamics on 14 July 2020. Dr. Robock is a regular participant in ACOM's ongoing series of webinars leading up to the "Community Climate Intervention Strategies (CCIS) Workshop" in October 2020.
