Caption: Climate engineering. Computer artwork of a warship using its guns to fire reflective particles high into the atmosphere in an attempt to control the climate of the Earth. This proposed method is designed to reduce manmade global warming (the process where the heat of the Sun is trapped by manmade changes in the composition of the Earth's atmosphere) by reflecting sunlight. The particles would have to be continuously replaced, and they would change the colour of the sky from blue to white. This is one of several methods that could be used. It is not known for certain how climate change will progress, or how easy or dangerous it is to attempt to control the Earth's climate.
