Mangrove Media (Firm), WGBH (Television station : Boston, Mass.), ARTE France, PBS Distribution (Firm)

DVD - 2021

As global temperatures continue to rise, scientists are wondering if there are solutions beyond reducing emissions. Enter geoengineering. From sucking carbon straight out of the air to physically blocking out sunlight, the options may seem far-fetched. Can geoengineering really work? How much would it cost? And what are the risks of engineering Earth's climate?
