What if We Could Control Clouds?

Futurium, SILBERSALZ Science & Media Festival

The documentary film How to Kill a Cloud by Tuija Halttunen shows a Finnish scientist trying to produce rain in the desert of the United Arab Emirates.

Hannele Korhonen has taken on the ambitious challenge of irrigating the arid region – and this involves, in other words, the killing of clouds. “How to Kill a Cloud” describes the ethical dilemmas associated with a climate engineering project undertaken in a world of complex political and social dislocations.

This event has been inspired by questions from the general public regarding climate change, geoengineering, scientific understanding and global justice. A total of 14.000 questions were submitted this year to the science and research community as part of the Year of Science thread ”Participate!”. #Meine Frage für die Wissenschaft.
