As it is becoming increasingly unlikely that drastic emissions reductions will avert accelerated climate change, humans will have to look for ways to ease the impacts of a warming planet.

In the journal Nature, a group of scientists outline how three proposed engineering projects in Greenland and Antarctica could stave off glacial melting.
