Watch as some of the world's leading scientists put the most ambitious geo-engineering ideas to the test in order to tackle global climate change. From covering acres of Greenland's glaciers in protective blankets to constructing space rockets to sending tiny reflective lenses into orbit, these experiments push the boundaries of science and technology by exploring eight creative ideas that just might reduce global warming.   

BRIGHTER WORLD embarks on a search for answers to the planet's global warming problem. Using geo-engineering, the Discovery Project Earth team hopes to harness clouds and technology to modify the natural systems of Earth. The team experiments with marine strata-cumulus clouds, a carbon neutral vessel, and salt flares to try to cause clouds to reflect more sunlight and cool the earth.
