“the Bipartisan Policy Center (bipartisan in the democrat-republican sense) released their Task Force on Climate Remediation Research report (i.e geoengineering as a method for slowing or stopping the effects of climate change).”

Oh come now, this is pie in the sky thinking. To invest in such gargantuan projects would cost trillions and the results would be entirely debateable. If the climate changed again, some could claim that geo engineering was the cause, others could claim it had nothing to do with geo-engineering. These are make work projects. They remind me of an episode of the Simpsons, where the flim flam guy sold a Monorail to the people of Springfield. Its comedy.
