Controlling the Weather

Geoengineers never watch disaster movies. If they did then they obviously wouldn't keep trying to change the climate and weather. From seeding clouds with silver iodide (in order to increase precipitation) to using algae to consume CO2 many scientists seem keen to control the environment. What could possibly go wrong?

The Geoengineering Monitor is attempting to track and monitor attempts to geoengineer the climate around the world. It has mapped the location of over 800 geoengineering projects. The Geoengineering Map provides information on Carbon Capture, Solar Radiation Management and Weather Modification projects.

These three different types of geoengineering are shown on the map using color-coded map markers. If you click on a marker you can view details on the selected project. These details include information on the companies involved and a brief explanation of the science being used to try and control the climate or weather.
