The world's richest man has been funding geoengineering research, it emerged last week. According to a report posted online by Science, Bill Gates has committed $4.5 million of his own money to funding a number of climate scientists interested in geoengineering.
It is not clear whether all of that has gone to geoengineering studies. Atmospheric scientist Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Stanford, California, says he received $1.1 million over three years for "blue skies" research. He estimates about one-third of that was spent on investigating geoengineering.
Caldeira says he sees no moral dilemmas in Gates funding geoengineering. "There is no attempt to profit from this," he says. He contrasts Gates's involvement with commercial geoengineering ventures.
