Incredible Technology: How to Engineer the Climate. The idea of using geoengineering to combat man-made climate change in the future is an extremely controversial scientific issue. Many scientists argue that the risks far outweigh the potential benefits, while some say that geoengineering could be a viable last ditch effort to help save the planet from the possibility of catastrophic climate change. Rutgers Professor of Environmental Sciences and CECI affiliate Alan Robock contends that at a minimum virtual testing of geoengineered solutions using existing climate models should be conducted in order to collect information on potential risks and benefits.
