Solar geoengineering could increase the reflectivity of the Earth's atmosphere

The last time the atmosphere held as much carbon dioxide as it does today was about three million years ago, a time when sea levels were 10–30 meters higher than they are now.

Climate models have long struggled to duplicate those large fluctuations in sea levels — until now. Indeed, for the first time, a high-quality model of Antarctic ice and climate has been able to simulate these large swings. That is smart science, but it brings devastating news....
