“When you read the actual scientists’ reasoning for how [geoengineering] could work, and might need to work, it’s really hard not to come to the conclusion that it’s idiotic to discount it. Not to say it’s a slam dunk to do it, but idiotic to discount it entirely.”
A great quote from Stephen Dubner in this Guardian interview with him and Steven Levitt. We’re big fans of Freakonomics and delighted to have some of our climate science inventions featured in their upcoming sequel – Superfreakonomics. The new book is already starting to make some headlines even though it’s not due out until October 20.
Another U.K. paper, The Independent, also published a review that mentions our “hose-to-the-sky” concept. This is an idea for pumping sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere to cool the planet. The Independent calls it “the outer limits of freakonomics.”
We’ll post a lot more about our climate science projects soon.
