What initially seemed like a passing science fiction mediahype, suddenly appears almost inevitable: Solar Radiation Modification. A form of geo-engineering in which sunlight would be filtered or reflected back to outer space in order to counteract greenhouse gases. Behind the scenes, philanthropists and geopolitical powers such as the US and Russia are investing millions in researching this extremely controversial technique, the consequences of which are still far from fully understood. Large-scale implementation seems both an incredible and a logical consequence of this race. Is it a necessary evil or a malicious distraction strategy? Can it be stopped at all? And if not, could proper governance prevent a planetary clusterfuck in our atmosphere?
