Who gets a say in deciding whether to interfere with nature on a global scale?

  1. J Martin says:

    If it works they might be rewarded with a repeat Maunder after all. Maybe that’ll kill the global warming nonsense.

  2. Gamecock says:

    Billions will die.

  3. Curious George says:

    Spraying sulfur dioxide and other particles. Wow, that’s acid rain and fine coal ash.

  4. oldbrew says:

    ‘Keith and fellow engineer, Frank Keutsch, will research the benefits and risks by spraying particles such as sulfur dioxide, alumina, or calcium carbonate from a high-altitude balloon over Arizona during 2018.’

    What would success look like? If it starts snowing in Arizona after the test they’ll know who to suspect first :/

    In 1969 many here were totally convinced the freak weather had something to do with the blips on the TV screens coming from an aircraft carrier moored a few miles off the coast. You cannot convince the ignorant who suddenly found a convenient scape-goat.

    There may be backlash.

    Now there’s an idea use the only planet we can live on as a laboratory test tube to test some theories about climate.

    Heck, we might as well go back to atmospheric testing of nuclear devices while we’re at it!

    Britain tried it before — http://rense.com/general13/flood.htm

    Bit of an eye opener that one…

    Maybe they should just look at the real world first.

    Last night we had more snow fall on the local mountain, something that has not happened this late in the year for almost 20 years. It is those little details the models don’t cover and it is the models that these ‘scientists’ and ‘engineers’ use for their data. If they were real scientists and engineers they would look at the real world and take the data from real observations not adjusted ones.

    Will these over educated idiots ever quit wanting to act like gods?

    Only one commenter, sees the problem as I do. Where do we fall back to? As a safety zone, when aluminum is introduced into the atmosphere, a poison to mankind when ingested, creating age onset mental problems. How will mankind recover? Adapt to a lowered intelligence? Back to pounding sticks on the ground? And wondering what are those bright points of light in the sky?

  13. oldbrew says:

    If there is to be an experiment, they need to say in advance what would be a ‘satisfactory’ (or similar word) result, and why.
