Weak Signal's description 
Growing number of research efforts aimed to increase the level of knowledge about the feasibility and implications of geoengineering options to limit climate change with, for example: deliberate manipulations of the radiative budget of the Earth. Such an approach may counterbalance the effects of greenhouse gas emissions on global temperature, but may also result in undesirable side effects for crucial parts of the Earth system and humankind.
