Incredible Technology: Engineer the Climate

5 posts in this topic

Editor's Note: In this weekly series, LiveScience explores how technology drives scientific exploration and discovery.

Greenhouse gases are heating up the planet, spurring plenty of controversy about whether — and how — to stop pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. But some scientists are looking at another option, one they often see as an emergency brake: Geoengineering.

The idea behind geoengineering is to combat man-made climate change with man-made solutions, mostly involving ways to pull carbon out of the atmosphere or to deflect the sun's rays so the carbon dioxide has less heat to trap. The ideas are largely untested and highly controversial. They also involve tackling major technological challenges, some of which may be too great to overcome.

Seems like the more people mess with weather, the more can go wrong. Anyway, isn't HAARP already being used to supposedly experiment with the ionosphere? Is it possible that project might be changing things above the earth and changing the weather?

Not really. HAARP has a power output of 3.6 MW over an antenna array spanning 33 acres. The actual power density delivered to the atmosphere is many, many times less than the power delivered by the Sun.

HAARP has much less of an effect on the weather than a medium sized city, and certainly not a predictable effect.

Exactly. Besides that, the energy from HAARP is delivered to the ionosphere and not the troposphere where weather is.
