ABSTRACT
This article reports on progress in the field of geo-engineering, focusing on the question of whether such research could provide a means of alleviating the damage caused by global warming. Technological methods of achieving human-directed climatic changes are said to be entering the realm of serious research, after having long been predicted in works of speculative fiction, such as the short story "The Weather Man" by Theodore L. Thomas, which is quoted. The major factors involved are said to be carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation management.
