Geoengineering is a popular answer to climate change especially for those who don't want to change things as they are now and stop using so many fossil fuels. But the techniques proposed are rather scary.

Grist's Jesse Nichols demonstrates one of those ideas using household items. He also goes on to illustrate what would happen if we used geoengineering without stopping our emissions.

Hint! It's not great. Our planet would continue to be in danger and we would constantly have to apply the geoengineering solutions.

However, worst of all is that we still don't know what the full effects of geoengineering would be let's say for a city or a country. There's never been a real-world geoengineering experiment which means there are a lot of unanswered questions as to how it would work in our actual climate.
