This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. It is urgent that we must reduce emissions of carbon dioxide to help mitigate negative effects of climate change. Recently, there have been questions about geo-engineering (GE) -- large-scale deliberate interventions in the earth's climate system to diminish climate change. Most GE proposals fall into two approaches: solar radiation management, which offset temp. increases by reflecting a small percentage of the sun's light back into space; and carbon dioxide removal, which removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This testimony focuses on: (1) the state of the science regarding GE approaches and their effects; (2) fed. involvement in GE activities; and (3) the views of experts about the extent to which fed. laws and internat. agree. apply to GE.... observations for the committee addressing (1) the general state of the science regarding geoengineering approaches and their potential effects, (2) the extent to which the federal government has sponsored or participated in geoengineeringanbsp;...
