Description:

Stephen Salter joins Dr. Peter Wadhams, Paul Beckwith, and Regina Valdez to discuss the geo-engineering technique called ‘Marine Cloud Brightening.’ Stephen is a long time proponent of this technique, which promises to buy our planet time to drawdown our emissions by selectively cooling areas of the ocean. The oceans have absorbed over 90% of the heating due to Climate Change.
