On the left wing, there's this strange notion that geoengineering is a new corporate obsession. Scientists interested in the topic are accused of being part of a "geoengineering lobby" that wants to mess with the planet for fun and profit. Alas, there's no evidence to support this idea. In fact, as recent Point of Inquiry guest Eli Kintisch reports over at CNN Money (clarification: the article is actually from Fortune, and CNN picked it up), government regulations so far have quashed those few attempts to profit off of geoengineering that have made it to the trial stage. Kintisch's piece is called "Climate Hacking and Geoengineering: A Good Way to Go Broke." You can read it here.
