Bill Gates showcasing his claw.
Is he talking about poop dust though? You never know with The Poop Man.
The plan sounds like science fiction — but could be fact within a decade; every day more than 800 giant aircraft would lift millions of tonnes of chalk dust to a height of 12 miles above the Earth’s surface and then sprinkle the lot high around the stratosphere.
In theory, the airborne dust would create a gigantic sunshade, reflecting some of the Sun’s rays and heat back into space, dimming those that get through and so protecting Earth from the worsening ravages of climate warming.
This is not the crackpot plan of a garden-shed inventor. The project is being funded by billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates and pioneered by scientists at Harvard University.
Indeed, the plans are so well advanced that the initial ‘sky-clouding‘ experiments were meant to have begun months ago.
I’m experiencing some flashbacks.
What they just described is one of the theories surrounding Chemtrails that you could hear like 10 years ago.
In case you haven’t heard about this “chemtrail” thing: about ten years ago, people started noticing shockingly fast aircraft moving at higher-than-normal altitudes and leaving these “trails” from horizon to horizon that formed grid patterns.
They observed what happened to these “trails” as hours passed and began thinking that they were being sprayed with something and shared their thoughts about it online.
Due to how these “chemtrails” behaved and formed artificial clouds, one of the theories back then was that they were used to block sunlight in some kind of climate manipulation scheme related to global warming.
Now there’s public talk by authorities about doing exactly what was discussed in this “conspiracy theory” about a decade ago.
One of the Harvard team’s directors, Lizzie Burns, admits: ‘Our idea is terrifying… But so is climate change.’ An advisory panel of independent experts is to assess all the possible risks associated with it.
But creating what amounts to a gigantic sunshade for the Earth may come at a high price, posing even greater risks than climate change itself.
One fear is that spreading dust into the stratosphere may damage the ozone layer that protects us from hazardous ultraviolet radiation which can damage human DNA and cause cancers.
Climatologists are also concerned that such tinkering could unintentionally disrupt the circulation of ocean currents that regulate our weather.
This itself could unleash a global outbreak of extreme climatic events that might devastate farmland, wipe out entire species and foster disease epidemics.
The potential for disaster does not even end there. Trying to dim the Sun’s rays would likely create climate winners and losers.
Scientists may be able to set the perfect climatic conditions for farmers in America’s vast Midwest, but at the same time this setting might wreak drought havoc across Africa.
For it is not possible to change the temperature in one part of the world and not disturb the rest. Everything in the world’s climate is interconnected.
Furthermore, any change in global average temperature would in turn change the way in which heat is distributed around the globe, with some places warming more than others.
This, in turn, would affect rain levels. Heat drives the water cycle — in which water evaporates, forms clouds and drops as rain. Any heat alteration would cause an accompanying shift in rainfall patterns. But how and where exactly?
All of this seems to be already happening.
Skin cancer is on the rise. We’ve already heard stories where flooding, heavy rains and all kinds of natural disasters in other continents are blamed on climate change. Some even go as far as saying that white people are to blame.
If it is, as they say, a possible consequence of messing with the climate…
Did they accidentally create Climate Change by trying to stop Climate Change in a kind of Climate Change Paradox?
It seems plausible that they’ve already done this climate-meddling thing and that the chemtrail people were onto something back then, similarly to how some people think that all the UFO talk lately is a way of going public with technology that was already developed and research that was already done.
What’s to stop a nation such as Russia interfering with our weather in the same way it has interfered with elections and social media opinions?
Nevertheless, Harvard scientists maintain that they can manage their brainchild safely.
For example, one of the SCoPEx team’s leaders, David Keith, a professor of applied physics, recently reported that by evenly seeding the entire global atmosphere with low levels of reflective dust, there should be a far lower risk of unexpected problems than is feared.
Professor Keith has also suggested that the world’s richer nations should club together to create a pooled global insurance fund to compensate poorer countries for any damage unintentionally caused by their sun-shield experimentation.
There it is.
Give money to browns and blacks, beware of Russia!
Critics point out that the promise of a stratospheric sunshade could encourage politicians and industrialists to decide that there is no need to do the hard, unpopular and expensive work of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Mike Hulme, a Cambridge University professor of human geography and former scientist on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, says we could end up instead relying massively on technology to compensate for climate problems that our industries are causing.
He calls this spiralling problem ‘temperature debt’, because it is like amassing credit-card debts that can never be paid off. ‘It is a massive gamble,’ Professor Hulme warns. ‘Far better not to build up this debt in the first place.’
Even greater questions arise. How do you switch such a global cooling system off? And what unforeseen consequences would arise if you suddenly did so.
This dream ‘fix’ seems to have plenty of potential to become a global nightmare.
That’s not a bug; it’s a feature!
Our economy is pretty much based on debt and Talmudic magic, so why not base our relationship with the climate on debt too? Just for the sake of consistency.
