In a first-of-its-kind study, scientists will disperse aerosols into the stratosphere in initial tests of a controversial technique for blocking incoming solar radiation.

A team of Harvard researchers is preparing a first-of-its-kind field experiment in the hotly-debated area of solar geoengineering, the controversial idea to combat climate change by pumping aerosols into the sky to reflect the sun’s rays back into space.

The study will be the first to actually shoot tiny amounts of material into the stratosphere to study solar geoengineering — although researchers caution they will start with water vapor and won’t exceed volumes over 1 kilogram of any substance.

Yet the concept of intentionally modifying the earth’s atmosphere as a corrective for global warming is highly contentious, even among those who believe it could one day be used responsibly.

“The idea that you could even think about adjusting the temperature of the planet is terrifying,”

The first thing that comes to mind is WHY?
All life on earth has the sun to thank for it's existence, if all of the sudden we need to worry about blocking it's radiation, we've got huge problems nobody's talking about.
There should be no reason to do this, and we're at a solar minimum, traditionally associated with a cooling trend and less radiation.

Hmmm...

The first thing that came to my mind was chemtrails.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

Here's a thought: The know a mini ice age is coming and they are using the lack of awareness to make millions of dollars and then when the mini ice age hits they will claim success.

This hasn't already been going on for years?

Quote:The five new special clouds are: cataractagenitus, describing clouds that develop from the spray of large waterfalls; flammagenitus, describing clouds formed under the influence of wildfires; homogenitus, describing clouds formed by human activities, such as airplane contrails; silvagenitus, describing clouds formed under the influence of moisture from respiring trees; and homomutatus, describing clouds originally made by humans that gradually transform into more natural-looking forms, like a contrail that eventually spreads in the wind.

Five new clouds? All popping into existence? Some form of this has been going on for a long time.
