Report brings together experts in climate science and policy to map key challenges.

Is it possible that a concerned businessman would try to stop climate change by deploying an untested technology? A novel workshop held at Yale University imagined a future in which a fictional billionaire released sunlight-reflecting aerosols into the stratosphere from a hidden base in the Canadian Arctic. As the workshop report was being prepared, American entrepreneur Russ George dumped one hundred tons of iron sulfate off the western coast of Canada in a rogue demonstration of ocean fertilization. The workshop participants did not have a crystal ball; instead, they used an imaginative technique called “scenario planning” developed in military and business circles to pressure-test strategies and plans against a wide variety of plausible futures.
