Don’t look now but just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, scientists from Harvard and Yale Universities are here to help when it comes to fixing climate change.
Scientists want to spray chemicals in the atmosphere to slow down the impact of climate change.
In fact, they want to spray sun-dimming chemicals by a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI), which they claim could reduce the rate of global warming in half.
Now, in case you thought they had any evidence that the procedure would actually work (you know, like the claim that climate change is real without any evidence to prove it), don’t worry we have some time.
Thankfully, for now, the technology doesn’t exist and there is no aircraft currently available to spread the chemicals throughout the atmosphere.
However, that’s not a deterrent to scientists who claim that the total cost of launching the SAI system in about 15 years for approximately $3.5 billion, with annual running costs of $2.25 billion a year over a 15 year period, is plausible.
Scientists do acknowledge there are some risks involved like coordinating between multiple countries which would be required to initiate SAI.
The process could also jeopardize crop yields, lead to droughts which could kill food supplies or cause extreme weather.
But, isn’t that small potatoes compared to the benefit of ridding the world of global warming?
Oh, and there could be a little problem with rising greenhouse gas emissions which just happens to be a leading cause of global warming but should we really nitpick?
After all, aren’t the prospects of working with multiple countries in a “globalist” venture much more important than the negative impact SAI is sure to have on just about everyone’s life?
Yeah, no thanks. I’ll pass.
