Now that we are in an ever-warming world, is it time for us humans to use our powers for good? The idea of geo-engineering is seriously being considered today at a conference in Washington.

Joining Madeleine to discuss the efforts to reverse climate change with geo-engineering is Roger Pielke at the University of Colorado. He's a professor of Environmental Studies and author of the new book, The Climate Fix -- What Scientists and Politicians Won't Tell You About Global Warming.

Also, KPCC's Sanden Totten reports on how people are making money off climate change investments.

You can view the entire geo-engineering conference at the New America Foundation's YouTube page.
