"Is it time to think about Engineering the Climate?" Cambridge Debate

Climate change is kicking in and we are becoming increasingly concerned that a 4-degree global temperature rise is on the cards for later this century. This will lead to dramatic changes in sea level leaving vast regions of the world uninhabitable. We have the means to adapt and engineer our world. We already create huge dams to supply water to desert regions, and we heat the homes of billions of people in cold climates. There are proposals for technologies to cool the planet. Is it the right time to think about engineering the climate?
