Reflecting sun’s rays would cause crops to fail, scientists warn

Research shows geoengineering method intended to combat climate change would have adverse effect on agriculture — Proposals to combat climate change by reflecting the sun’s rays back into space would cause widespread crop failure, cancelling out any benefits to farming from the reduction in warming, according to new research. By examining the effects of volcanic …

Solar geoengineering could ‘fail to prevent damage to crop yields’

Releasing aerosols into the atmosphere in order to limit the rise in global temperature would not stave off damage to crop yields, a new study suggests — Scientists have suggested that intentionally releasing aerosols into the atmosphere – a type of “solar geoengineering” – could help to limit global warming by reflecting away incoming sunlight …
