In their 1957 paper on carbon dioxide and climate, Roger Revelle and Hans E. Suess wrote: “Human beings are now carrying out a large-scale geophysical experiment of a kind that could not have happened in the past nor be reproduced in the future.” Nearly six decades later, the same uncontrolled “experiment” continues unabated, while new ones — intended to address the effects of humanity’s atmospheric footprint — are being proposed. Multiple concepts for directly and deliberately manipulating Earth’s climate system, collectively referred to as “geoengineering,” are being considered as potential responses to climate change
