Achieving the temperature goals set in the Paris agreement means cutting carbon dioxide emissions. One possible complement – not a substitute – is solar geoengineering. What are the benefits, opportunities, and risks of this technology? How can researchers help policy-makers make informed decisions about how and when they should seek to deploy solar geoengineering?
