Why Pluto is even colder than it should be https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/s... “When New Horizons took Pluto's temperature, the dwarf planet was cold — colder, even, than anyone had predicted. Researchers were puzzled. Earthbound instruments gauged Pluto to be minus-280 degrees Fahrenheit. New Horizons showed that Pluto's thermostat was dialed to 330 degrees below.”
Geoengineering to Cool the Planet Risks Doing More Harm Than Good https://www.seeker.com/earth/climate/... “With the world facing increased warming, melting ice caps, rising sea levels, intense weather events and other global disasters, scientists are exploring ways to re-engineer the planet to counter the effects of global warming.”
Behind the Push to Get Pluto Its Planetary Groove Back https://www.seeker.com/behind-the-pus... “Pluto's "demotion" to a dwarf planet back in 2006 is still a touchy subject, even among scientists. When you account for the fact that astronomers, who study stars and black holes, were the ones who decided on the definition of a planet that resulted in Pluto's declassification, it's understandable that various planetary scientists don't even want to talk about it.” ____________________
