Geoengineering not without a risk

If we could fix the climate problems with different engineering techniques would they be easy to solve, or not? Geoengineering also named climate engineering is to do interventions in the Earth’s climatic system with the aim of reducing global warming. Such intervenions can also cause negative effects. Media attention and coverage after a press conference at European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2015 for Helene Muri, researcher at University of Oslo.

From 12. to 17. April 2015 was Vienna in Austria venue for the European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2015 General Assembly.

Helene Muri at University of Oslo, Section for Meterorology and Oseanography participated in a press conference about her research on geoengineering. This resulted in articles in the press all over the world.
