Rebalancing Earth's energy flows and restoring her biogeochemical cycles by achieving carbon neutrality through engineering that renewed human values have informed
Mirrors Can Save the World.
MEER:ReflEction is a grand, versatile, and comprehensive engineering project feasibly rooted in the ecological functioning and resource availabilities of planet Earth. It addresses the imminent urgency of climate change due to temperature increase and weather extremes while reshaping our energy production and consumption to renewable energy. MEER:ReflEction applies thin film-coated glass mirror arrays to most efficiently achieve (1) solar radiation management via dynamic control of surface albedo, (2) renewable energy production, (3) carbon dioxide drawdown through ocean liming using solar thermally-produced calcium oxide (CaO), (4) removal of secondary greenhouse gases and air pollutants via mirror-enabled atmospheric photochemical engineering, and (5) biodiversity recovery via a geographic restructuring of agricultural primary production in a high-CO2 world.
