We aren't doing such a great job solving the whole climate change problem, which is why some experts think it's time to study more radical tactics. The notion of geoengineering -- hacking the climate to cool the planet -- is controversial, awe-inspiring and, to many, terrifying.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
