Amidst an increasingly pressing climate situation, national governments and international institutions are repeatedly judged unable to implement relevant measures. On the other hand, this position stands in stark contrast to frequent claims in scientific journals about the limited value of geoengineering field experiments and even about inherent scientific knowledge gaps.
That point of departure is shared by the present paper, and by those of Loukannen et al. However, the storyline of geoengineering as a way of mimicking nature tends in quite the opposite direction.
On the contrary, this is a way of gaining credibility. These four storylines all point in the same direction, favouring the testing or deployment of geoengineering. Geoengineering is without argumentation or problematization assumed to be pure technology devoid of all political considerations.
The more alarmingly global warming is presented, the greater the need for geoengineering and, consequently, the less noteworthy criticism of it becomes. However, by the end of the studied period, considerable efforts are being made to enact geoengineering as a set of technologies based on mimicking nature.
Would not Captain Nemo have felt fairly comfortable in that company? World Needs a Backup Plan The governments of the world, it is said, are not prepared to compromise their economic growth rates; in particular, countries such as India and China are claimed to be far from accepting expensive emissions cuts.
Furthermore, even if it did exist, a pristine nature or a Holocene climate would in any case have no intrinsic value and would not provide a better environment for humanity.
We focus on how various storylines and metaphors are interrelated in mass media, constituting a general discourse favouring more research into and testing or deployment of geoengineering.
US geoengineers to spray sun-reflecting chemicals from balloon The climate engineers We do not dismiss that idea but claim that a preceding step should be to scrutinize and understand the present discourse, and as a first step we attempt to find inconsistencies in the storylines. Are climate scientists coming around to geoengineering?
Scrubbing the Atmosphere Kyoto has had no impact on CO2 output. However there seems to be a contradiction between the lack of promises and the absent belief in progress on the one hand and the totalizing, modern ambition to manage climate change with the help of grand-scale global deployment of technologies amplifying the notion that scientific engineering carries the only possibility to save the planet.
This is seldom made into an objection to these technologies in spite of the repeatedly declared acuteness of the need to come to terms with global warming. Threat of global warming sparks U. A Perilous Path An analysis of a chance to save An NHL and hockey humor blog.

More extensive analysis will be needed to determine whether the test is truly accurate enough to use in the field. The method designed by Kumar is deceptively simple, and works by connecting two ideas scientists have understood for decades.
