Experiments in geoengineering – deliberately manipulating the Earth’s weather to minimize worldwide warming – became the point of interest of a necessary debate approximately dependable technology and innovation. Drawing on 3 years of sociological study operating with scientists on?one of the world’s first significant geoengineering initiatives, this?book examines the politics of experimentation. Geoengineering offers a attempt case for rethinking the obligations of scientists and asking how technology can take higher care of the futures that it is helping carry about.
This booklet offers scholars, researchers and the final reader attracted to where of technology in modern society a compelling framework for destiny pondering and discussion.
