Not only would geo-engineering depress crop yields by starving plants of sunlight, it now looks likely any serious attempt to geo-engineer the climate might exacerbate the spread of Malaria. Now is the time to answer questions about climate engineering disease impacts Date: September 28,…

Climate Geoengineering Oops: Injecting Sulphates Into the Stratosphere To Reflect Sunlight Would Starve Crops of Sunlight

Guest essay by Eric Worrall I guess we should be grateful that this time someone noticed the problems BEFORE creating another climate policy driven global food shortage. Dimming sunlight to slow global warming may harm crop yields: study Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent OSLO (Reuters) – Spraying a veil of sun-dimming chemicals high above the Earth…

Latest nutty Geoengineering idea: Salt the atmosphere

An idea so bad, even Michael Mann realizes it’s a stinker. Sprinkling large amounts of salt into the atmosphere could stave off climate change, a group of researchers has proposed. They’ve suggested that, because salt is highly reflective, it could potentially reflect sunlight back into outer space, helping to cool the Earth, they wrote in a…
