Here We Go: Scientists Now Want to Dehydrate the Stratosphere to Combat Global Boiling

by Jim Hᴏft Scientists have proposed an audacious novel geoengineering technique: intentionally dehydrating the stratosphere. A study published in Science Advances involves the ambitious and contentious idea of seeding the upper atmosphere with particles to prevent water vapor from entering in the stratosphere. Water vapor is important because it’s the most abundant greenhouse gas on Earth. The greenhouse effect occurs when gases in the atmosphere trap heat from the sun, keeping the planet livable. Water vapor is made up of complex molecules that absorb heat radiated from the Earth’s surface and re-radiate it back to the planet. Water vapor...
