In recent times geoengineers have gradually been coming out of the closet on the controversial and much-debated topic of weather modification and climate engineering.
The UK government have recently ended their SPICE (Stratospheric
Particle Injection Climate Engineering) research program whereas Italian
Senator, Domenico Scilipoti, has recently spoken out about the dangers of chemtrails as a result of toxic atmospheric aerosols and Bill Gates has also recently admitted to funding research into geoengineering.
It is claimed that current efforts to fight against global warming are
not working efficiently enough and that we need to resort to spraying
deflective aerosols (chemtrails) into the atmosphere (Stratospheric Particle
Injection) to protect against radiation from the sun (Solar Radiation
However, it is also an acknowledged fact that once started,
such schemes will need to be maintained indefinitely by future
generations. Chemicals such as sulfuric acid, sulfur oxide and hydrogen sulfide are
injected into the stratosphere and other chemicals to have been
proposed include sulfide gases such as dimethyl sulfide and carbonyl
sulfide for direct delivery of precursors.
The Council On Foreign Relations claim that one Kilogram of well-placed
sulfur in the stratosphere can offset the warming effect of several
hundred thousand kilograms of carbon dioxide. We have already emitted half-a-trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide into Earth's atmosphere since the industrial revolution whilst we cannot allow emissions to exceed double this level.
According to MIT Technology Review the side effects of geoengineering
include noticeably affecting the appearance of the sky, O-zone layer
depletion, lower levels of sunlight and tropopause warming and
In 2007, the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control) concluded that the act of geoengineering was
unproven and that many researchers and scientists were bitterly concerned about
the consequences. However, the IPCC have since claimed that there may be no other option.
