Safer and cheaper methods exist but they have not received as much attention as the "mad scientist" solutions.66 Ways to Absorb Carbon and Improve the Ea rth's Reflectivity is the first book that presents the whole range of existing geoengineering proposals and analyzes the dangers and benefits of each scheme.
