These are the types of geoengineering projects that are terrifying because it’s basically good intentioned types who believe they can solve a problem by creating another problem. And who NEVER do truly adequate risk assessments because if they did and the assessment resulted in too many severe risks it’d be documented proof they should either end the project or when the project hits one of those risks they’d be blamed: neither of which they want to happen.
