The article explores the potential of white roof as an effective solution to address three interrelated problems which are global warming, urban heat island effect, and energy consumption in buildings. First, global warming and urban heat island effects are briefly explained. Later, some geoengineering approaches as potential solutions to such issues are explored. Among various solutions, the white roof technology is analyzed in more depth and its effects on building energy efficiency are investigated. Finally, the experiment carried out at CERN IdeaSquare is presented. According to the results, the application of white roofs in urban areas stands as a compelling, possible alternative.
