Will the world ever be ready for solar geoengineering?

The first time Frank Keutsch heard about solar geoengineering, he thought the idea was terrifying.

Not only might the strategies disrupt the atmosphere in unexpected ways, but they might also dramatically alter the weather and harm the lives of Earth’s inhabitants.
