Build a volcano, save the planet?

Environmental News
March 16, 2007
Crazy-sounding ideas for saving the planet are getting a serious look from top scientists, a sign of their fears about global warming and the desire for an insurance policy in case things get worse. There’s the man-made “volcano” that shoots gigatons of sulfur high into the air; the space “sun shade” made of trillions of little reflectors between Earth and the sun, slightly lowering the planet’s temperature; the forest of ugly artificial “trees” that suck carbon dioxide out of the air; and the “Geritol solution” in which iron dust is dumped into the ocean. “Of course it’s desperation. It’s planetary methadone for our planetary heroin addiction. It does come out of the pessimism of any realist that says this planet can’t be trusted to do the right thing.”
