Caption: Atmosphere engineering. Diagram showing the technology that could be employed in altering the Earth's atmospheric conditions to reduce climate change effects. From top to bottom are: two types of space mirrors, cloud-seeding balloon and plane exhausts (bright blue, upper centre), a cloud-seeding yacht (right, designed by Stephen Salter), land (bottom left) and sea (lower centre) solar reflectors, and marine organisms like kelp (bottom centre) and phytoplankton (bottom right). It is not fully known how climate change will progress or how easy or dangerous it is to control the Earth's climate.
