Abstract: Global warming was and still is a thorny issue for the entire world. The absence of a worldwide approved solution has led in research of new ways to confine this problem. One of the solutions that are nowadays proposed is geoengineering. Although it is believed by many as a promising method there are those who still disagree or at least remain cautious for its implementation. Vast research has been done upon geoengineering and whether it is suitable to deploy it. However the externalities of geoengineering are not the only matter that has drawn scientists’ attention. The incapability of countries to reach a consensus upon geoengineering’s deployment and the inability to form an international environmental agreement still remains. This paper reviews the field of science that is called geoengineering and the scientific research that is in favor and against its implementation. Also it reviews the research that has been done, till now, upon international environmental agreements in relation to geoengineering and we demonstrate the scientific results of whether there is a possibility to form such an agreement.
