Harvard scientists have been developing a new method to spray the sky using high altitude aeroplanes, to block the sunlight, and now, they are ready to conduct it. They claim that by doing so, they will prevent global warming and cool the Earth.
The experiment is set to start in early 2019, using calcium carbonate, which was their second option after they agreed to opt out of using aluminum as initially planned.
They aim to “replicate” the effect of a volcano eruption or climate-cooling would have on the outer layers of the atmosphere.
Nature magazine summarises the plan:
“If all goes as planned, the Harvard team will be the first in the world to move solar geoengineering out of the lab and into the stratosphere, with a project called the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx).
The first phase — a US$3-million test involving two flights of a steerable balloon 20 kilometers above the southwest United States — could launch as early as the first half of 2019.
Once in place, the experiment would release small plumes of calcium carbonate, each of around 100 grams, roughly equivalent to the amount found in an average bottle of off-the-shelf antacid. The balloon would then turn around to observe how the particles disperse.”
“SCoPEx builds on four decades of research on the environmental chemistry of the ozone layer in the Anderson/Keith/Keutsch groups. SCoPEx will use or adapt many of the high-performance sensors and flight-system engineering experience developed for this ozone research.
Analyzing these experiments will improve our knowledge beyond what is currently available within computer models or is measurable with confidence under laboratory conditions.”
“The basis around this experiment is from studying the effects of large volcanic eruptions on the planet’s temperature. In 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines erupted spectacularly, releasing 20 million tonnes of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere. The sulfur dioxide created a blanket around Earth’s stratosphere, cooling the entire planet by 0.5 °C for around a year and a half.
As scientists, governmental agencies around the world, and environmental groups grow increasingly worried of our collective ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and curb climate change, the idea of geoengineering a solution has become more accepted.
The ultimate goal is to reduce the warming on Earth. This can be done by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, sucking CO2 from the atmosphere, or limiting the sunlight that reaches Earth’s surface.”
Scientists plan to normalise geoengineering as there is an actual data that demonstrates the existence and history of geoengineering, which is specifically weaponised weather alteration.
However, the question remains: do we really know what will happen when scientists spray calcium carbonate into the atmosphere?
It might be possible that the whole climate change or global warming debate originates from the same people with strong ties to the government!
Many people think they have already felt the consequences of geoengineering, and there is even data to prove it, one such example is the rain test conducted in the West Coast that tested positive for high levels of aluminum.
Other people insist that they can scent the static electricity in the moisture of the air, while some suggest that they can even notice it by experiencing flu-like symptoms.
Many thought, disregard these aluminum spraying theories as a conspiracy.
However, if it does happen, can we foretell the results of such an experiment? What is the real purpose behind such an experiment? If it actually is a conspiracy theory, how can you explain the regular aluminum traces in the rain?
