Artificial clouds, fabricated volcanic eruptions and carbon capture from the air: Until recently, these were perceived as utopian and unrealistic climate solutions, but now more and more scientists are spending time on so-called climate fixing, ie climate technology that will cool the climate rather than reduce greenhouse gas emissions. How did we end up here? Can we solve the climate problems by playing God, or was it the attitude that created the problem in the first place?

Helene Muri is a researcher at NTNU and works mainly with climate and environmental aspects related to the Paris agreement, with negative emission technologies and solar geoengineering . Now she will give an insight into some of the most debated climate solutions and discuss whether they can actually play a role in solving the climate problem.
