A Bill Gates Venture Aims To Spray Dust Into The Atmosphere To Block The Sun. What Could Go Wrong? (forbes.com)

bandicam 2021-01-17 06-09-27-241.jpg

Microsoft’s billionaire founder Bill Gates is financially backing the development of sun-dimming technology that would potentially reflect sunlight out of Earth’s atmosphere, triggering a global cooling effect. The Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), launched by Harvard University scientists, aims to examine this solution by spraying non-toxic calcium carbonate (CaCO3) dust into the atmosphere — a sun-reflecting aerosol that may offset the effects of global warming.

Widespread research into the efficacy of solar geoengineering has been stalled for years due to controversy. Opponents believe such science comes with unpredictable risks, including extreme shifts in weather patterns not dissimilar to warming trends we are already witnessing. Environmentalists similarly fear that a dramatic shift in mitigation strategy will be treated as a green light to continue emitting greenhouse gases with little to no changes in current consumption and production patterns.

SCoPEx will take a small step in its early research this June near the town of Kiruna, Sweden, where the Swedish Space Corporation has agreed to help launch a balloon carrying scientific equipment 12 miles (20 km) high. The launch will not release any stratospheric aerosols. Rather, it will serve as a test to maneuver the balloon and examine communications and operational systems. If successful, this could be a step towards a second experimental stage that would release a small amount of CaCO3 dust into the atmosphere.

David Keith, a professor of applied physics and public policy at Harvard University, recognizes the “very many real concerns” of geoengineering. It is true that no one knows what will happen until the CaCO3 is released and then studied afterward. Keith and fellow SCoPEx scientists published a paper in 2017 suggesting that the dust may actually replenish the ozone layer by reacting with ozone-destroying molecules. “Further research on this and similar methods could lead to reductions in risks and improved efficacy of solar geoengineering methods,” write the authors of the paper.

The exact amount of CaCO3 needed to cool the planet is unknown, and SCoPEx scientists similarly cannot confirm whether it is the best stratospheric aerosol for the job. Early research suggests that the substance has “near-ideal optical properties” that would allow it to absorb far less radiation that sulfate aerosols, causing significantly less stratospheric heating. This is the purpose of the experiment: once a safe, experimental amount of CaCO3 is released, the balloon will fly through it, sampling atmospheric reactions and recording resulting dynamics. Frank Keutsch, the project’s principal investigator, does not know what the results might bring. The perfect aerosol would not immediately tamper with stratospheric chemistry at all: “The only thing it would do is scatter maximum sunlight and hence cool down the planet.”

Proponents of geoengineering have cited the global cooling effects of volcanic eruptions that result from the introduction of sulfuric ash into the atmosphere. The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia resulted in the “year without a summer,” while the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines lowered global average temperatures by 0.5° C. Deliberate introduction of similar particles could potentially counter decades of greenhouse gas emissions. A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggested the SCoPEx procedure could lower global temperatures by a full 1.5° C for no more than $1-10 billion a year.

Again, these temperature decreases bring with them serious risks. Freezing temperatures in 1815 led to failed crops in near-famine conditions. British scientists have cited stratospheric aerosols from volcanic eruptions in Alaska and Mexico as the potential cause of drought in Africa’s Sahel region. Major disruption of the global climate could bring unintended consequences, negatively impacting highly populated regions and engineering another refugee crisis.

David Keith has proposed the creation of a “risk pool” to compensate smaller nations for collateral damage caused by such tests, but such a payout might be little comfort to those displaced by unlivable conditions. The United States, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia blocked a 2019 United Nations assessment of global geoengineering plans. International cooperation will be required to assess the risks, winners, and losers of any such experiment, and how best to proceed with all in mind.

Considering the unknown risks attached to solar geoengineering, OECD members should continue in their efforts to develop economically attractive renewable energy technology, even as it supplements such efforts with limited and careful research and experimentation.

Ohh goosebumps, i wasn't expecting that... :eek: Good one... :unsure: As u say, perhaps, only time will tell...
The only thing i could think of was that Simpsons episode...LoL:)

Such a dangerous experiment but... It has potential to throw the globe into such a deep ice age it could make mankind extinct:(

A Bill Gates Venture Aims To Spray Dust Into The Atmosphere To Block The Sun. What Could Go Wrong? (forbes.com)



Widespread research into the efficacy of solar geoengineering has been stalled for years due to controversy. Opponents believe such science comes with unpredictable risks, including extreme shifts in weather patterns



And this is the guy who wants to vaccinate everyone in the world... Go u trust him???


First of all, it is not a Bill Gates VENTURE.



In 2007, Gates created a grant-making research fund known as the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research (FICER). SCoPEx is partly funded through FICER and partly funded by Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program, which itself is funded by a number of foundations and other private donors, including Gates.



And second, do a fact check before you get all alarmed about it. Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program plan to release a small amount of the calcium carbonate (no more than 3.4 pounds) into the wake of a propeller-driven weather balloon flying 12 miles above the arctic in order to do research. Hardly a Blocking of the Sun.



And third, I do not believe that the darkening of the sun in Revelation and the prophets that is foretold concerning the Day of the Lord is due to man's efforts but as a direct result of Judgment. The judgments of Revelation are from God not man's pollution or mistakes in messing with science.





Is Bill Gates Funding Efforts To Block The Sun?



Sensationalized headlines mischaracterize the efforts of Harvard's SCoPEx project.

Claim



A project funded by Bill Gates "would help block out the sun."



Rating Mostly False



What's True



Since 2007, Bill Gates has funded research initiatives that, in part, provide grants for experiments related to solar radiation management — a form of geoengineering controversially proposed as a last-ditch solution to anthropogenic global warming. A Harvard experiment named SCoPEx is supported in part by these initiatives.



What's False



The project at issue in several sensationalized news stories, SCoPEx, is an experiment designed to collect data for the purpose of refining computer models that simulate solar radiation management, not to implement an actual test of the practice. The most the experiment would seek to do is release two kilograms (3.4 pounds) of non-toxic dust from a weather balloon 12 miles high in the sky.



Origin

Bill Gates is a popular target of conspiracy theories characterizing his charitable giving as evidence of a nefarious world domination scheme. In late December 2020, reacting to reporting from Reuters, the Western Journal published a story titled “Bill Gates’ Savior Complex Spirals Out of Control, Funds Sun-Dimming Plan To Save the Human Race.” In that piece, the outlet represented a Harvard University project named SCoPEx, partially funded by Gates, to be a catastrophic threat to humanity and a literal test of a form of geoengineering known as solar radiation management — releasing aerosols into the atmosphere as a way to cool the planet and counter global warming.



The Western Journals reporting, and other claims in its vein, reference or combine a December 2020 Reuters story with elements of a scientifically confused profile of the SCoPEx project published in 2019 by the British tabloid Daily Mail. The stories or tweets generally assert or imply that: Bill Gates is funding research that will literally dim the sun; that he “wants to” use this form of geoengineering as a tool to fight climate change; that SCoPEx specifically seeks to test the theory that “spraying particles into the atmosphere” can reduce warming; and that scientists think SCoPEx itself could produce global unintended consequences.



Such assertions or implications are misleading in several regards described in detail below. Briefly, it is true that Gates has funded research that includes theoretical studies into the feasibility of solar radiation management. SCoPEx is one of those projects. It is, however, a mischaracterization to suggest that SCoPEx seeks to test geoengineering per se, that a geoengineered world is a desired outcome for the people involved in the project, or that SCoPEx itself could disturb the global climate system.



What is SCoPEx?



The ultimate point of SCoPEx project is not to dim anything — scientists do not need to test whether aerosols block sunlight, that fact is already well established — but instead to release a small amount of the calcium carbonate (no more than 3.4 pounds) into the wake of a propeller-driven weather balloon flying 12 miles above the arctic, creating a diffuse cloud that is roughly 1000 yards long and 100 yards in diameter.



The data gathered during this experiment would, among other things, help inform computer models that look into the potential risks of actual geoengineering. These models, the SCoPEx website explains, “are the primary tool for estimating the risks and benefits of solar geoengineering.” To refine these models, scientists need to know how the aerosols interact with the atmosphere on a nanoscale. According to the project’s website:





What is Bill Gates’ Involvement?



In 2007, Gates created a grant-making research fund known as the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research (FICER). SCoPEx is partly funded through FICER and partly funded by Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program, which itself is funded by a number of foundations and other private donors, including Gates.





The Bottom Line



Further, a diffuse cloud of chalky powder gently perturbed by a propeller-driven weather balloon 12 miles above the arctic is in no way capable of altering the global climate system. Headlines or statements to the contrary rely on “slippery slope” arguments about geoengineering in general, not a fear that SCoPEx itself could destroy the world.

Global warming is their reason...

Or maybe his just jealous of Mr Burns off the Simpsons...:)

Either way this nut job is the person responsible for these experimental vaccines which he wants to force upon us all
He looks to be responsible for releasing covid seeing he owns a patent of it and had a simulated practice pandemic in October 2019
And he wants to chip us and track us

OH U CLIMATE CHANGE DENYING, ANTI-SCIENCE, GRANDMA HATING, TIN FOIL HAT WEARING, CONSPIRACY THEORIST...;)

Thats why they changed to climate change. Now their trying to blame everything from snow to fire on it...

Its been a cold summer down here... Up there?

To keep you from getting enough 'natural' vitamin-D from exposure to the rays of the sun?

(Somehow I doubt this is "just about the Arctic"...)

I think the guy thinks he is greater than God.
He probably has arranged for his body to be frozen when he dies so that future science can bring him back to life somehow lol.

Is that not the primary base principle of any-and-all who do not fear God?

Yes - he certainly does not seem to have any regard for God - because - he wants to be 'god' - and, "rule the world"...

He probably has arranged for his body to be frozen when he dies so that future science can bring him back to life somehow lol.
No doubt...

when there has been rain here, the temp has gone down.
It's strange having to wear a hoodie on a wet day, in middle of summer.
Albeit, to keep my shirt dry.
Otherwise, sunny days are fairly warm, of course.

Hey i just saw on the news that NSW are trying to ban "anti-vaxxers" from bars, pubs, restaurants and even work.
