Cooling the planet with surface reflectors

As our climate emergency intensifies day by day, MEER aims to directly tackle the most imminent threat, Earth's rising temperatures, with the help of solar reflectors installed on rooftops, open spaces and farmland, redirecting portions of sunlight back into space before it has a chance to heat our planet. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is absolutely necessary, and enhancing natural carbon sinks is also essential. But we will break through deadly temperature boundaries before these slow-response strategies can start to cool the planet. We are currently involved in a research and testing phase as we explore the effectiveness of our primary tools before the publication of peer-reviewed research, while simultaneously carrying out small-scale pilot projects in heat adaptation and mitigation in urban and agricultural settings.

Anticipating the adverse effects of climate change and taking appropriate action to prevent or minimise the damage they can cause

MEER's Urban Cooling is a heat adaptation project series designed to make dwellings and other structures more livable in places where people are suffering from thermal intolerance. Urban Cooling will first take place in Ahmedabad, India, and Freetown in Sierra Leone. It involves the installation of solar reflectors on the rooftops of the homes of people who cannot afford any other means of regulating the temperatures inside. Urban cooling will first take place in Ahmedabad, India, and Freetown in Sierra Leone in 2023.
