Scientist proposes chemtrail solution to global warming

<!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Scientist publishes 'escape route' from global warming</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>By Steve Connor, Science Editor<br>Published: 31 July 2006<br><br>A Nobel Prize-winning scientist has drawn up an emergency plan to save the world from global warming, by altering the chemical makeup of Earth's upper atmosphere. Professor Paul Crutzen, who won a Nobel Prize in 1995 for his work on the hole in the ozone layer, believes that political attempts to limit man-made greenhouse gases are so pitiful that a radical contingency plan is needed.<br><br>In a polemical scientific essay to be published in the August issue of the journal Climate Change, he says that an "escape route" is needed if global warming begins to run out of control.<br><br>Professor Crutzen has proposed a method of artificially cooling the global climate by releasing particles of sulphur in the upper atmosphere, which would reflect sunlight and heat back into space. The controversial proposal is being taken seriously by scientists because Professor Crutzen has a proven track record in atmospheric research.<br><br>A fleet of high-altitude balloons could be used to scatter the sulphur high overhead, or it could even be fired into the atmosphere using heavy artillery shells, said Professor Crutzen, a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Germany.<br><br>The effect of scattering sulphate particles in the atmosphere would be to increase the reflectance, or "albedo", of the Earth, which should cause an overall cooling effect.<br><br>Such "geo-engineering" of the climate has been suggested before, but Professor Crutzen goes much further by drawing up a detailed model of how it can be done, the timescales involved, and the costs.<br><br>In his forthcoming scientific paper, Professor Crutzen emphasises that the best way of averting global climate disaster is for countries to cut back significantly on their emissions of greenhouse gases, notably carbon dioxide produced by burning oil, gas and coal. But in the absence of such measures, and with the average global temperature expected to rise more than 3C this century, there may soon come a time when more extreme measures have to be considered, he said.<br><br>"If sizeable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions will not happen and temperatures rise rapidly, then climatic engineering, as presented here, is the only option available to rapidly reduce temperature rises and counteract other climatic effects," Professor Crutzen said.<br><br>"Such a modification could also be stopped on short notice, if undesirable and unforeseen side-effects become apparent, which would allow the atmosphere to return to its prior state within a few years," he said.<br><br>Such an idea is so controversial that some scientists opposed its publication in the peer-reviewed scientific press, fearing that it may encourage the view that it is easier to treat the symptoms rather than the causes of climate change.<br><br>Professor Crutzen, however, argues that the "grossly disappointing" international political response to the necessity of cuts in greenhouse gas emissions means that it should no longer be considered taboo to think about geo-engineering of the climate.<br><br>"Importantly, its possibility should not be used to justify inadequate climate policies, but merely to create a possibility to combat potentially drastic climate heating," he said. "The very best would be if emissions of the greenhouse gases could be reduced. Currently, this looks like a pious wish."<br><br>His plan is modelled partly on the Mount Pinatubo volcanic eruption in 1991, when thousands of tons of sulphur were ejected into the atmosphere causing global temperatures to fall.<br><br>Pinatubo generated sulphate aerosols in the atmosphere which cooled the Earth by 0.5C on average in the following year. The sulphate particles did this by acting like tiny mirrors, preventing a portion of incoming sunlight from reaching the ground.<br><br>Professor Crutzen calculated that a relatively small amount of sulphur could cause similar cooling if it was released at high enough altitudes into the stratosphere, rather than at the lower altitude of the troposphere. Weather balloons or even artillery shells could be used to carry the sulphur.<br><br>"Although climate cooling by sulphate aerosols also occurs in the troposphere, the great advantage of placing reflective particles in the stratosphere is their long residence time of about one to two years, compared to a week in the troposphere," Professor Crutzen said.<br><br>"It may be possible to manufacture a special gas that is only processed photochemically in the stratosphere to yield sulphate," he said. Such a compound should be non-toxic, insoluble in water, non-reactive, and have a relatively short half-life of about 10 years.<br><br>It would cost between $25bn and $50bn - or about $25 or $50 per head in the developed world - to launch sufficient sulphate to last for up to two years.<br><br>But this high cost should be measured against the much bigger costs of environmental disasters, such as coastal flooding, caused by global warming, he said.<br><br>Side-effects could be an increase in the destruction of the ozone layer and whitening of the sky, although the particles would make sunsets and sunrises more spectacular, he said.<br><br>Other 'geo-engineering' ideas<br><br>* Reflecting mirrors:<br><br>Earth's natural reflectance or "albedo" reflects about 30 per cent of sunlight back into space. Increasing the albedo could be done by building giant unfolding mirrors in space, laying reflecting film in the deserts, or floating white plastic islands in the ocean to mimic reflective effect of sea ice.<br><br>* Swallowing up CO2:<br><br>Marine plankton absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which the microbes need for photosynthesis. The growth of plankton is limited by the relatively small amounts of iron in the sea. Scientists have conducted experiments on boosting plankton by throwing iron filings into the sea.<br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://news.independent.co.uk/environment/article1205975.ece">news.independent.co.uk</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p216.ezboard.com/brigorousintuition.showUserPublicProfile?gid=rigorousintuition>Rigorous Intuition</A> at: 7/31/06 1:06 am<br></i>

Chemtrails in part have been used to push the fake global warming banner and of course the keyword meme "you are responsible for global warming"<br><br>This is no different from Teller's original design and the one that has been in operation since circa 1995. The key thing being I would guess is the quick fix solution to the worlds problems, the problem created by those whom deem us sheeple.<br><br>To see the shield in operation just watch the night view over any town that had been chemtrailed during the day, its a vision akin to an oasis in a mirage. <p></p><i></i>

Why use sulphur? Why not Barium? It's highly reflective, much more so than sulphur is. And as an added bonus we already have a fleet of jets outfitted to do just that. Lots of pratical experience in dealing with it. Maybe we could add some quartz dust and aluminium too. Every little bit helps.<br><br>Of course, we'll need to monitor how well it is getting distributed. I suppose that we have some drones we could send up to keep track of how it's all going. Send them up in fleets and have them fly in formation.<br><br>It just might work. <p></p><i></i>

So why are we suffering under an unprecidented heat wave? Could it be that the Bush administration, having served its purpose, is going to be thrown to the wolves? <br><br>Pure speculation but.....<br><br>Is it possible that the PTB have been spraying at least in part to mitigate the effects of climate change and have slowed that spraying, allowing the climate to roar back with a vengance? No wonder university scientists find the climate so difficult to predict. Someone else has their finger in the pot.<br><br>Why would the shadow government undermine the Bush administration? Well, unlike our polititians, they aren't stupid. They know that you need balance. In government, in society, in all things. Perhaps by letting the right immolate itself and then allowing the climate to reassert its' normal state they can also allow Bush's political opponents to "win" a few elections. Or at least believe they have. <br><br> <p></p><i></i>

The general idea isn't that crazy. Though I don't like the thought of putting sulphur into the air since that would come out as acid rain. It is know as "global dimming" and works. After 9-11 scientists measured a real temp increase due to the lack of air traffic as all airlines were grounded. <br><br>The idea of putting some kind of reflective covering over the poles is an old one too. A giant mylar relective shield would really work.<br><br>None of this is really that new. Back in the sixties such forward thinkers as Alvin Toffler (Future Shock) and Asimov could see that the industrial revolution was warming up the climate, or had to potential to warm things up. They couldn't prove it back then but it was pretty clear what was going on. The argument has never really changed. All that has happened is the oil compainies bought themselves some time while science found irrefutable evidence that our activity is causing global warming. <p></p><i></i>

Scientist proposes SULFUR to distract from C-Span 9/11.

Postby Hugh Manatee Wins » Tue Aug 01, 2006 1:49 am

The controversy and thus the center of attention in this story isn't global warming, it is the idea of using <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>SULFUR</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> which seems counter-intuitive since this is a major pollutant emanating from burning coal and a source of nasy sulfur dioxide which is an acid.<br><br>So why <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>SULFUR</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->? Some special reflective properties? No, just a volcanic eruption is mentioned as the inspiration.<br><br>Still, isn't <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>SULFUR</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> a problem already? Yes.<br><br>Here's the Environmental Protection Agency warning us that sulfur dioxide is a terrible problem in the form of acid rain.<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.epa.gov/airmarkets/arp/index.html">www.epa.gov/airmarkets/arp/index.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br> <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Acid Rain Program<br><br>The overall goal of the Acid Rain Program is to achieve significant environmental and public health benefits through reductions in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), the primary causes of acid rain.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Allowances<br><br> * Clearing The Air: The Truth About Capping and Trading Emissions<br> * Allowances Fact Sheet<br> * SO2 Allowance Data<br> * Allowance Allocations<br> * Allowance Auctions<br> * Allowance Transfers<br> * Conservation and Renewable Energy Incentives<br> * Opt-in Program<br> * Buying Allowances if You're Not A Regulated Source<br> * SO2 market analysis <hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br>So why would a scientist advise using one of the worst ingredients possible?<br><br>Funny that this story focusing on that keyword came out a day or two after C-SPAN showed the 9/11 truth panel with Professor Steven Jones showing recovered THERMATE from Ground Zero.<br><br>THERMATE is the brand name version of thermite and is used for demolition due to the especially effective steel-cutting qualities caused by the addition of...<!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>SULFUR</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> which was detected in metallurgical analysis of debris recovered from Ground Zero.<br><br>So perhaps this global warming article focusing on sulfur is a decoy, a distraction from the very real science that proves that 9/11 really was another false-flag terrorist operation just like Operation Northwoods in 1962.<br><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>This might be called...keyword hijacking.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> <p></p><i></i>
