Every time I read an article about geoengineering, I think to myself “what would the reaction in the American press be if it came out that the Chinese government was investing vast sums of money in developing technology to manipulate global weather patterns?”

Maybe we’d see it as a useful contribution to the fight against climate catastrophe. But it seems more likely to me that it’d be seen as the PRC building a doomsday weapon. Right?
