modifying weather and climate is a very old dream of mankind so we have always tried to have good forecasts but also many attempts have been tried to influence weather like rain or avoid rain the real issue of climate
engineering did a very large-scale global scale was motivated by the
frustration of scientists but we have done so many IPCC reports climate assessment and giving recommendations what to do to avoid dangerous climate agent so far nothing visible has
happened that has led portraits and others to think through what else what
options might there be if politics and
society fails to really respond to to scientific advice and scientific knowledge Croton paper was published I
think in 2006 and it started some debate among scientists initially among national scientists so it was about the possible potential of Arizona injection of very high stratosphere and we thought
it is necessary to first study the possible scientific effects could it really work but we also think there's
lots of different aspects like legal issues governance issues who would be responsible who would say what is a good temperature we could be happy with who would monitor our to were detected at
any measure one would really deploy would undertake would we distribute winners and losers worldwide and this was a huge danger that has to be
controlled and that's a scientific
question we have to answer could it be controlled could we manage
this kind of redistribution of losers winners and there's a lot of background
knowledge that has to be generated
before society can decide do we want to live should we ever try that and I think that's a scientific responsibility to provide information for a good public debate
