Climate ‘Science" Gone Wild: UK Researchers to Pump Toxic Sulfates into the Sky to Promote Global Cooling
Weather Scientist in the UK claim they can control the weather at will. They claim by pumping
Toxic sulfate particles into the sky it will reflect natural sunlight back into space thus cooling the Earth
and a defending it against global warming. The group known as SPICE, or Stratospheric Particle Injection
for Climate Change Engineering, has been funded and will begin to build a giant pipe supported by a
giant hydrogen balloon that pumps water and sulfates a mile into the stratosphere. The pipe is
supposed to mimic the effects of a volcanic eruption, except it will cool the Earth instead of warm it up.
Here is my problem with this, in theory we are possibly experiencing Global Warming because of
the toxic emissions we have pumped into our atmosphere over a vast amount of time. Emissions such
as fumes from cars and factories to smaller things like aerosol hairspray. Now to fix the effects of all the
toxic chemicals we have "pumped" into our air that caused the damage in the first place, we are to
pump more toxic chemicals in the air to help fix it?
Take the $30,000 dollars you were funded for the pipe and invest in buying everyone a bike to
ride to work, or to implement better public transportation methods to cut down on toxic emissions.
Then take the fact that this "experiment" has not even been proven to work to reflect the heat away
from the Earth. The only thing that is a proven fact is that by pumping these toxic chemicals into the air
we will cause more damage. I assume after they pump these chemicals and the UK becomes the hottest
spot on Earth, instead of an area on the Equator, we will know this does not work. Unless Alaska is sick
of the snow and would like to become more like Hawaii....
