Rebalancing Earth's energy flows and restoring her biogeochemical cycles by achieving carbon neutrality through engineering that renewed values have informed
The Right First Step for Cooling Earth and Healing Her Ecosystems
Deploying arrays of mirrors is that right first step. MEER:ReflEction is a comprehensive, grand, and versatile engineering framework that is feasibly based on Earth’s ecological functioning and her resource availabilities. It addresses climate change: particularly our situation’s urgency, which rising temperatures and weather extremes are causing. It also reshapes energy production and consumption, allowing us to make the transition to renewables.
The MEER:ReflEction Framework calls for the deployment of thin film-coated glass mirrors that are arranged in arrays. The Framework is designed to achieve five results: biodiversity recovery by geographically restructuring agricultural primary production in a world where carbon dioxide levels are excessive; carbon dioxide drawdown by using ocean liming that relies on sustainably-produced calcium oxide; removal of secondary greenhouse gases and air pollutants via mirror-enabled atmospheric photochemical engineering; renewable energy production; and solar radiation management that increases Earth’s surface albedo.
