Following ETC Group’s 2010 “Geopiracy” report, this report exposes the context, goals, actors and rapid developments underway to advance climate manipulation, or geoengineering. The new framing from geoengineers is that we must accept these dangerous technofixes because they cannot see any other alternative to stall or prevent climate havoc.

Since “Geopiracy,” the narrative has evolved to play on growing public alarm about the climate crisis and the technologies have advanced, but the actors and their goals remain the same. From adjusting the Earth’s thermostat to changing the chemistry of the oceans, geoengineering proposals pose unacceptable threats to people and the environment.
