London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 22, 2009 -- Scientists have been investigating whether developing a battery of satellites that deflect solar radiation could help reverse the effects of global warming. The theory is the brainchild of professor Roger Angel, who believes the `solar shield` could be ready by 2040 if necessary, according to the Daily Telegraph. Building the 100,000 sq mile sunshade would be the most ambitious project ever attempted by man but some scientists are wary of the idea, believing that it could have unforeseen effects on the earth. New York University professor Martin Hoffert explained that regardless of what the human race does to stop global warming, it must do something.`What you have to be prepared for is that many of these experiments aren`t going to work - this is the way science and engineering progress,` he told the newspaper.`You build something, you try it, it doesn`t work, you try it again. This is sometimes called learning by doing. `We`re not doing and therefore we`re not learning. `It was recently suggested that low-lying cities such as New York could be severely affected by climate change over the next century.
