Big Solutions for Big Problems

Human activity has moved mass amounts of carbon stored within the earth and released it into the atmosphere. Let’s face it, we’ve burned a lot of fossil fuels. Millions of years of stored carbon in the span of the 200 years. As we begin to feel the effects of this drastic change to the earth’s systems in the form of warming, severe weather, ice retreat and other symptoms, its natural to wonder how we can put the genie back in the bottle. Scientists like recent Harvard PhD Graduate Katie Dagon are researching ways to geoengineer solutions on a major scale. Ways to keep the heat out, and remove carbon from the atmosphere.
