The earth cooled the last decade and bitterly cold winters are slamming the globe. So is it really necessary for geo-engineers to spend our tax dollars finding ways to lower temperatures even more by reflecting away sun rays with space mirrors, spraying sulfur compounds into the atmosphere, dumping iron into the sea, “planting” artificial trees, and a host of other crazy ideas? Seems a little over the top, doesn’t it?
The UK Telegraph reported:
The summit of climate scientists, to be held in California in March, will examine drastic techniques for slowing climate change that are controversial and have been described as “geo-piracy”.
Among the possible measures to be discussed will be ocean fertilisation, which would see iron dumped into the sea to boost plankton growth, and artificial trees that use a chemical process to soak up CO2.
Most techniques focus on ways of reducing the sun’s rays by blocking them using mirrors orbiting in space or by spraying sulphur compounds into the high atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from earth.
One proposal is for a fleet of ships that would spray seawater into the sky that would leave behind salt crystals to brighten clouds, reflecting more sunlight back into space.
Can someone send these guys the memo?
