Ever since the Industrial Revolution, humanity has been enthralled with technology and the continual advancements of it. What this means today, with climate change, is that we seek a technological fix to our planet’s natural problems. Therefore,Continue reading “Geoengineering technology is not the solution, it is part of the greater problem”
