Mirrors for Earth's Energy Rebalancing 

A 501c3 non-profit organization fiscally sponsored by Social Environmental Entrepreneurs

MEER designs and develops surface-based mirror arrays and solar reflectors and welcomes partners who will help to deploy them swiftly, in both economically feasible and environmentally sensitive ways, for one purpose—to steer Earth away from a lethal heating trajectory.

"Temperature rise: this is the biggest and gravest concern that we face."

-Dr. Ye Tao, Founder & Scientific Director

Reflection
Dr. Ye Tao

Dr. Ye Tao on the origins of MEER:

"I was in charge of running a lab at Harvard’s Rowland Institute to develop new microscopes to improve how we could work with nanoparticles. The more I heard about global warming and the scientific issues surrounding that from colleagues, and of how quickly the Earth would begin to experience devastating effects, I started questioning my own efforts in nanoscience, which would take decades to develop and bring to implementation. I realized that I had to re-focus my time on this much more urgent problem.

I have a multidisciplinary background in physics, chemistry, engineering and material science, which among today’s scientists is relatively uncommon. In nanoscience we talk a lot about dimensionality―the number or level of physical dimensions matter exists under. Climate change and greenhouse gas accumulation is in essence a three-dimensional problem because we have emitted so much gas in a three-dimensional space, Earth’s atmosphere, and it is very freely mixed.

 

In order to clean this absolutely gigantic volume of space we have in front of us a 3D engineering problem, and if you factor in the time needed to suck all the air out and circulate it through a filter, then it becomes a four-dimensional problem. 

The reason we are obsessed with getting rid of greenhouse gas is to try to open a window so the heat from Earth can escape. But what if we looked upstream? 

What if instead of trying to let the heat escape from Earth, we try to find a way to stop it from developing in the first place, just by reducing the amount of heat that is produced on the ground as the sun shines on the planet? And in fact, this is a much more efficient way of solving the problem, reducing it from its original three dimensions, to just two dimensions."

Here are a few sentences about Peter Dynes. Really great guy. Seems to care a lot about humanitarian causes. Is hoping that we all don't go down before 2100, so joined the MEER team to help. He is involved with all things MEERish and is hoping to get some projects up and running in India, Africa and who knows where else!
