It's been an exceptionally long and harsh winter in North America and it has Jacquelyn thinking about what is and isn't in our control. On the topic of climate, such thoughts can lead to the controversial topic of geoengineering.
Jacquelyn and Ramesh have a fascinating chat with Dr. Jane Flegal, Program Officer for Environment at The Bernard and Anne Spitzer Charitable Trust, about the current state of geoengineering.
Also, in unexpected science, Ramesh talks about new research involving cycles of CO2 levels in the ocean and coral reefs.
Here's Dr. Flegal's geoengineering reading list:
