Over the past month, we’ve published a host of articles by geoengineering experts as part of our first installment of Futurography—a new project from Future Tense in which we explore a different technology each month. We’ve heard arguments for it, warnings against, and everything in between.

Come back next month for a roundup of your responses. And then stick around for the start of our second Futurography unit, which asks whether we’ve given algorithms too much power.

This article is part of the geoengineering installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Each month from January through May 2016, we’ll choose a new technology and break it down. Read more from Futurography on geoengineering:
