The University of Cambridge plans to launch a research facility to explore radical “last ditch” methods of combating global warming, including a scheme to refreeze the Arctic. The Centre for Climate Repair will gauge the feasibility of geoengineering techniques, which would seek to cool the Earth by deflecting the sun’s energy into space. It will also investigate methods of removing carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere. While many of the proposals have been talked about for years, all are unproven and many are likely to be unfeasible. However, the centre is being established amid fears that current technologies and policies will not prevent catastrophic climate change.
