The fact that “none of the proposed technologies really exist on anything other than paper… raises serious concerns as to whether any of them could be developed and deployed at scale within the next few decades”.
This lack of research, together with international governance and legal barriers represent just a few of the major challenges facing the development of geoengineering technologies.
