By Forrest Clingerman,Kevin J. O'Brien,Thomas Bruhn,Sarah E. Fredericks,Laura M. Hartman,Willis Jenkins,Stefan Schäfer,Dane Scott,Stefan Skrimshire,Marit Trelstad

Calming the Storm offers diversified views on one of the most very important questions raised via weather engineering: Who has the correct to make judgements approximately such international technological efforts? What have we realized from the choices that brought on the weather to alter that may make clear efforts to opposite that vary? What frameworks and metaphors are worthy in pondering weather engineering, and that are counterproductive? What non secular ideals, practices, and rituals will help humans to visualize and overview the chance of engineering the climate?
