"A vital book on geoengineering."—Andrew Revkin, Dot Earth, New York Times "Few science books are more important, timely, and beautifully written [The Planet Remade] is a book that lays out all the facts, with great clarity and at some length, draws a conclusion, but leaves you to make up your mind."—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "[I]f you are going to read one book on . Geoengineering proposals were first developed in the middle of the 20th century. Relying on technologies developed during World War II, such proposals were designed to alter weather systems in order to obtain more favourable climate conditions on a regional scale. One of the best-known techniques is cloud seeding, a process that attempts to bring rain to parched . “After Geoengineering hints, though, that the movement is at last starting to offer strategic thinking commensurate with the crisis at hand.” —Troy Vettese, Boston Review “Original, thought-provoking.” —Nature “A book to be read on its own terms .   Exposing the climate geoengineering cover-up. Raytheon Corporation is the third largest weapons manufacturer, and is a partner in n also tells the weather to the American Meteorological Service (AMS) and is the leading corporation in Weather Modification Nano Technology, as well as advanced Weather Weapon Systems. Here is Raytheon's RAY .

  In this timely and bold book, Holly Jean Buck lays out a case for approaching geoengineering from the Left. Blending journalistic insight with scientific speculation, After Geoenginneering inspires much-needed thought experiments about the changes coming to our warmer and weirder world.”.   The book concludes with a series of forward looking essays, some drawing lessons from precedents for governing other global issues, others proposing how geoengineering technologies might be governed if/as they begin to emerge from the lab into the real by: 2.

Geoengineering is the application of planetary engineering techniques to Earth. Recent geoengineering proposals have principally been methods to tackle human-induced climate change by either removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (e.g. using ocean iron fertilization) or by managing solar radiation (e.g. by using mirrors in space) in order to negate the net .
