GivingTracker| Bill Gates has sunk $4.5 million of his personal fortune into a geoengineering concept called ‘climate hacking’. The concept of ‘climate hacking’ is to intervene in the Earth’s climate system to deliberately cool the climate. Geoengineering ‘buys time’ nothing more in problem of climate change.
The money will be directed by two high-level climate change scientists Ken Caldeira, of Stanford’s Carnegie Department of Global Ecology, and physicist David Keith of the University of Calgary. “They will decide which technologies should receive the cash in order to alter the stratosphere to reflect solar energy, filter carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere and brighten ocean clouds.” via Wired Science
