Some of the world’s leading scientists meet three uncompromising visionaries to put the most ambitious geo-engineering ideas to the test, tackling global climate change.
From covering acres of Greenland’s glaciers in protective blankets to stop it from melting to constructing space rockets to send tiny reflective lenses into orbit to planting thousands of saplings via a mass aerial drop to reforest barren areas, these are experiments on an epic scale. Each one pushes the boundaries of science and technology; exploring ideas that just might reduce global warming – but will they produce groundbreaking environmental results?
Ways To Save The Planet spans the globe, pinpointing areas of both concern and opportunity in confronting climate change. The experiments include Wrapping Greenland, Raining Forests, Infinite Winds, Brighter Earth, Fixing Carbon, Hungry Oceans, Space Sunshield and Orbital Power Plant
