Geoengineering is a general term that refers to proposals to manipulate the climate on a large scale to counteract anthropogenic climate change.1 Geoengineering proposals fall into two broad categories: carbon dioxide removal (CDR) proposals aim to draw carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and store it in terrestrial or ocean sinks; solar radiation management (SRM) proposals intend to enhance the Earth’s albedo to cool rising temperatures associated with climate change.
