Controversial technologies intended to offset the effects of atmospheric carbon should banned until properly assessed, a group of politicians and scientists have warned, even as they urged developed nations to lead in cutting CO2 emissions.

Even Dimming The Sun Wouldn’t Save Antarctica’s Ice Now, Scientists Say

Geoengineering is often presented as a last-resort technological fix to the climate crisis that can still swoop in and save the day.

But new models suggest that such risky measures, like dimming the Sun, are not enough to save Antarctica now.

Radical ways to fix the Earth: are they magic bullets or just band-aids?

Technologies like geoengineering may tackle global warming – but first we need to ditch fossil fuels for renewable energy
