The greenhouse effect threatens to increase the temperature of the Earth substantially leading to gross changes in the quality of human life. This paper suggests a solution to this problem via the deployment of a "Space Parasol" at the Lagrangian point L1 of the Earth-Sun system, to intercept some desired fraction of the solar radiant energy.
