Scientists Call For Geoengineering To Dim The Sun To Stop Coral ...


Man attempting to control creation. Control the amount of sunlight reaching earth. What could possibly go wrong? Man casting aside and denying God foolishly believing themselves to be gods. Believing there is no God, or that if there is a God He isn’t paying attention and won’t mind man meddling in things — since man and woman have done such a bang-up job of things since the Garden.

Man and woman, and children being listened to as if they are oracles from on high and know best, are the wise ones with regard to climate change and the myriad things being blamed for the destruction of the earth and man, woman, and children vainly, blindly thinking they know what and why and their obsession to save the earth is what is most important, and their desperate and misguided so-thought solutions all ought to be followed.

The destruction of the earth does occur. At some point in the future. Probably much closer than further away. But not due to all the things being assigned blame and the one true thing that causes the destruction of the earth not mentioned, written about, marched over, on the news, online, in the hearts and minds of so many people…

…it is SIN that brings about the destruction of this world. It is rebellion against God, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the inerrant infallible living and active Word of God that ultimately brings about the destruction of all things as they have been known.






Those bring about the destruction of this earth. And attempts to blot out, dim the sun, and control the weather. ban this, that, and so many other things will not alter the course. In truth, they will only expedite matters. Only instill the wrath of God. Only have more people given over to their wickedness and delusions thinking themselves wise and becoming fools.

There are two articles here about the same subject. While at first glance these might appear to not be relevant to this place or Scripture, or the spiritual war every person on earth is witnessing and partakers in this is precisely the nature and deeds of man written of in the Holy Bible that further drives man and woman from God their Creator and is part and parcel of the heightened spiritual war activity taking place worldwide. Around and within every person on earth.

A world that is under God’s Sovereign will and control. All things going according to His will. Do not then misunderstand. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit have no hand and no part in evil. It is man’s will, man’s sinful rebellion at enmity with God acts. God just knows what those acts and ways are and will be, being Omniscient.

This may be difficult to comprehend with our finite minds compared to God’s infinite ability and knowledge. God knows all things. God knew all things before the foundations of the world were established. This may be hard to grasp for a person without faith, doubting, and schooled by the world rather than the Word.

But God knows. All things. And He certainly knows the evil, the wickedness, the motives, the heart, the mind of every person on earth. And He knows just how wicked and sinful men and women are. What our true natures really are.

God is in control. Not as a puppeteer. No, each person has choice to admit they hear, finally see, and come to know the Truth, the Way, the Light bringing them out of perpetual darkness and eternal death to the Life

But God even knew who would hear Him and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and faithfully repent, believe and allow the Holy Spirit to enter their heart and mind to renew their spirit, their heart, their soul, and their lives changing them within to serve the Lord, obey the Lord, and know the Lord.

Man vainly imagining they can dim the sun? Attempt to control the weather? Leaving God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Bible out of matters? What could possibly go wrong?

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? — Startup Says It’s Started Releasing Chemical Into Atmosphere to Dim Sun


January 11, 2023

A small environmental startup called Make Sunsets has started injecting sulfur dioxide particles into the stratosphere in an effort to ever-so-slightly cool the planet, a provocative and unproven method of combating a growing climate crisis.

As The Washington Post reports, the company’s CEO and founder Luke Iseman released six-foot helium balloons filled with sulfur dioxide over Baja California in Mexico last year.

The goal was to have the balloons release sulfur dioxide particles at high altitudes, reflecting the Sun’s heating rays back into space, a process commonly referred to as solar geoengineering.

According to MIT Technology Review, the stunt — despite its tiny scale and unsophisticated methodology — likely marked the first time anyone has actually attempted such a feat.

“We joke slash not joke that this is partly a company and partly a cult,” Iseman told MIT Tech late last year.

Make Sunsets is blazing ahead despite plenty of criticism and uproar over previous geoengineering efforts. For one, as critics are quick to point out, we don’t even know if the idea will work — or if it could have unintended consequences.

“The current state of science is not good enough… to either reject, or to accept, let alone implement” solar geoengineering, Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative, told MIT Tech in an email, adding that it is a “very bad idea.”

Despite its many critics, the idea of geoengineering has picked up quite a bit of momentum lately. In 2021, the National Academies of Science recommended that the U.S. should “cautiously pursue” the idea given the growing climate crisis.

And earlier this week, a team of U.N.-backed scientists released a report, detailing the progress of a landmark 1989 treaty called the Montreal Protocol that regulates ozone-damaging chemicals — which included an entire chapter dedicated to the concept of solar geoengineering.

In short, the overwhelming majority of scientists are in agreement that more research needs to be done before we can start sending copious amounts of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to ward off the Sun’s warming rays.

There are plenty of other reasons to be skeptical. For instance, there’s the fact that solar geoengineering efforts may affect entire regions of the world, thereby ignoring geopolitical boundaries outright.

“Who gets to say it’s okay to do this, and if it’s done, how much is done and where and under what protections and with whom in charge?” UCLA environmental law professor Edward Parson told The Washington Post. “These are unexplored questions.”

In other words, coming to an international consensus once the effects of solar geoengineering are better understood, could prove difficult.

But given the Montreal Protocol’s inclusion of the idea in its latest report, we could be taking the first steps.

“We’re actually advancing the ball a bit here by having the first full chapter in this framework where every nation in the world is at the table,” David Fahey, one of the co-chairs of the scientific assessment panel, told CNBC.

“‘It depends,’ is a really, really important message on this topic at this stage,” he added.

Supporters of the idea of climate interventions like solar geoengineering argue that the world is accelerating towards a climate disaster and we can’t afford to sit idly by.

“It’s morally wrong, in my opinion, for us not to be doing this,” Iseman told MIT Tech, adding that it’s important “to do this as quickly and safely as we can.”

A graph in the Montreal Protocol shows that the global surface temperature could rise significantly with limited or no mitigation. Injecting aerosols into the stratosphere could offset this rise significantly, according to the graph.

Meanwhile, Iseman isn’t dissuaded by the uncertainties and lack of scientific consensus on the effects of solar geoengineering, telling the WaPo that he plans to release more balloons later this month from Mexico.

He’s planning to spend the next 20 years releasing “as much as I possibly can while doing it safely,” he told the newspaper.

And, oddly enough, he’s technically not breaking any rules, either. As a recent Bloomberg opinion piece points out, “there is no law or treaty to prevent a private company from tinkering with geoengineering.”

More on solar geoengineering: Scientists Increasingly Calling to Dim the Sun

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

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.
