CNN's China to expand weather modification program to cover area larger than India ends with the following sentence:
"While China has not yet shown signs of 'unilaterally' deploying geoengineering projects on the ground, the scale of its weather modification and other massive engineering projects, including mega-dam projects (such as the Three Gorges), suggests China is willing to deploy large-scale geoengineering schemes to tackle the impacts of climate change and achieve its Paris targets."
and the scope of my question is limited to the Earth Science aspects of geoengineering projects that could "..tackle the impacts of climate change and achieve... Paris (agreement) targets".
To my knowledge the Paris Agreement primarily focuses on the reduction of greenhouse gas emission itself, so I would think that geoengineering solutions might involve removing gases already emitted in the form of new biomass or as gas in geological sequestration sites, or by producing energy with a technology having a lower greenhouse emission rate.
- Is that so? If so, what are specific examples?
- Since the same article discusses both cloud seeding for precipitation induction and the dispersal of reflective particles to reduce global warming earlier, could there be some atmospheric dispersal technology that could help a country "...achieve its Paris targets"?
