They're batshit INSANE!!! gaah.gif

The eventual plan is for a helium balloon the size of Wembley Stadium to be tethered 14 miles above the Earth by a giant hose, which will pump out tonnes of chemical particles into the stratosphere.

It is hoped that the droplets of sulphates and aerosol particles will reflect the sun's energy back into space, preventing it from heating the earth.

The concept is based on the similar cooling effect of volcano eruptions on the atmosphere.

Before embarking on the full project known as 'Spice' - Stratospheric particle injection for climate engineering - the team will conduct feasibility tests with a miniature version of the technology.

Backed by a £1.6million government grant and with the support of the Royal Society, the team hopes to follow up on the initial tests with full-scale radiation experiments on the equipment, which will operate at twice the altitude of commercial planes.

The tests, scheduled for October, are not expected to have any environmental impact but environment groups in Britain and the U.S. said the eventual deployment of such a system could be dangerous, with the potential to affect rainfall and harm food supplies.

Geo-engineering is seen as a 'plan B' against climate change, to come into effect if the global agreements on reducing greenhouse gasses fails.

But this proposed solution, known as solar radiation management (SRM), is just one strand of geo-engineering.

'There are two types of geo-engineering, one is this type of solar radiation management, and the other is carbon removal - taking carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it somewhere, perhaps underground.

'We are in a position now where we have to seriously look at the carbon removal option, but we don't support solar radiation management because we just don't know enough about the risks.'

Carbon removal? Excuse me? As a carbon base life form I strongly object damned.gif

ğkking kill me, there IS a problem with global warming... it stopped in 1998!

Quote:For many years now, human-caused climate change has been viewed as a large and urgent problem. In truth, however, the biggest part of the problem is neither environmental nor scientific, but a self-created political fiasco. Consider the simple fact, drawn from the official temperature records of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, that for the years 1998-2005 global average temperature did not increase (there was actually a slight decrease, though not at a rate that differs significantly from zero).

Yes, you did read that right. And also, yes, this eight-year period of temperature stasis did coincide with society's continued power station and SUV-inspired pumping of yet more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

In response to these facts, a global warming devotee will chuckle and say "how silly to judge climate change over such a short period". Yet in the next breath, the same person will assure you that the 28-year-long period of warming which occurred between 1970 and 1998 constitutes a dangerous (and man-made) warming.

Mother Nature never takes kindly to our meddling. While the Sun will continue to blaze long after Humanity's time on Earth has set. The arrogance & Foolishness of those who wish to control man handle the Earth is amazing.

Somebody needs to stop those crazies.

Or...they know something we don't?
Something that calls for desperate means?

Here goes my new favourite emote again:

This may be of interest to you Octo.

I hope they do more of this type of research in all levels of Earth's lower and upper atmospheres.

Quote:This limits scientists' ability to predict how these changes will influence global climate in the future. ATTREX will study moisture and chemical composition in the upper regions of the troposphere, the lowest layer of Earth's atmosphere.


Quote:The Earth Venture missions are part of NASA's Earth System Science Pathfinder Program managed by Langley. These small, targeted science investigations complement NASA's larger science research satellite missions.

They are located there Octo, but nobody is home and all the lights are off.

...CIA = blundering...

In one way or another, the CIA has been blundering since its creation in 1947, prompting President Eisenhower to remark as early as 1961 that the agency’s shortcomings during his eight years in power would force him to leave a “legacy of ashes.”

Anyway, I thought this new research would be of interest to you, in that, they will be analyzing the chemical composition of the lower atmosphere.

It is interesting, thanks. I'll save it for later, I'm too damned busy right now and a few days ahead. panic.gif

Didn't most of the analysis functions get moved to under the Denver airport???

You'd have to consult with Jesse Ventura or Alex Jones on that. chuckle.gif

There is an underground city in the Ozarks. Supposed to be several others, but I have only seen footage of the one.

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
The night
