New strategy seeks unconventional solution to climate change: Editorial Reaction

Emily Voneman, News Editor

Climate change is the biggest problem our world is currently facing. Predictions paint a stark picture of what the future may look like if we continue on the path we’re on today. Any viable solution, no matter how unconventional, deserves attention. While more extensive research should be conducted on solar geoengineering methods before world leaders look into implementing them, that research should be and deserves to be done. We owe it to our planet to search for options to put our climate back on the right track. Solar geoengineering may be a temporary stopgap that can buy us enough time to reduce our global temperatures, and if that is the case, then it is an idea that cannot be dismissed, no matter how science fiction-esque it may seem.
