With the rise of concern about climate change, serious attention is being paid to schemes of geoengineering which involve global technical solutions which would ameliorate global warming. [1] Some solutions involve injection of material into the upper atmosphere to intercept or reflect incoming energy, an "orbital sunshade", another involves fertilizing phytoplankton with iron to increase carbon dioxide absorption. [2] Covering deserts with reflective material has also been suggested. [1]
