Geoengineering is Just a Partial Solution to Fight Climate Change

Rutgers University reports on climate intervention strategies

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.
