Although at this point no one person can be sure the extent of the environmental impacts on solar shading, there is little room for debate that the practice does contain environmental side effects. Any change in the natural order of nature and whether will have side effects, seen and unseen, and we are becoming more aware of solar shadings effect on the rest of our environment.
Solar shading uses new technology within geoengineering to automatically control the amount of heat and light that enters and exits any building. This gives the user complete and automatic control of their environment. If anything, the side effects from this type of technology would help to benefit the consumption of natural resources, leading to more effecient consumption.
