Today on Your Call: Is geo-engineering our last hope against global warming?
Is geo-engineering our last hope against global warming, or is it a false solution? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a debate about geo-engineering. While environmentalists say we need to keep reducing carbon emissions, some scientists are researching the potential of artificial interventions—like adding sulfur to the atmosphere. How bad would the climate have to get for us to use strategies like this? Join us at 10 or email email@example.com. What do you think about the necessity or morality of climate manipulation? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.
