Learning to like it hot

Abstract:
By 2050, new developments may offer the promise of stabilising and reversing global warming. Schemes will emerge to seed the atmosphere with aerosols, microfoils and other particulate matter that scatter incoming sunlight and reduce temperatures at sea level. Nanoparticle and biological additives may be designed to increase the reflective properties of the oceans and compensate for loss of albedo associated with the reduction of ice cap coverage. Giant mirrors, land-based and in orbit, could track the sun to augment this reflection. More futuristically, techniques may be discovered to alter the temperature and chemical gradients of our seas and shape the great ocean currents to achieve a more benign global climate outcome.
