Geo-Engineering: Defensive and Offensive



Jamais Cascio

Changesurfer Radio

Posted: Mar 30, 2008


Jamais Cascio and Dr. J. talk about the concept of geo-engineering as a possible solution to climate change, but also as a possibly offensive weapon in geostrategy. Who would stand to benefit from unstopped warming, and who would benefit from warming slowed by man-caused volcanic eruptions or other kinds of human intervention? Also Tom Smith’s song Dead Again, from the Podsafe Music Network.  (MP3)
