Rogue Climate Adaptors

Today, the world can’t agree on how to curb carbon emissions. So imagine the not-too-distant future, when climate change has unmistakably arrived but countries can’t settle on which technological fixes should be employed.

So the International Institute for Strategic Studies wonders,

what’s to stop a country facing monsoon after monsoon from unilaterally trying to cool the Earth?

Such “rogue geo-engineering” could easily worsen matters for everyone.  That prospect would then force countries to treat climate change as a serious geopolitical issue.

Better late than never, I suppose.
