Geoengineering - effective climate protection or megalomania?

Methods – statutory framework – environment policy demands


Climate protection strategies today basically pursue two approaches: Firstly, measures should be taken to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emisssions. Secondly, measures should be implemented that enable humans and the environment to adapt to unavoidable climate change. For some time, proposals for counteracting climate change through large-scale intervention in global ecological processes have also been the subject of increased debate in literature and the media. Such measures are grouped together under the term geoengineering.
