Should scientists block out the Sun?
« on: March 14, 2019, 07:37:36 PM »
It has been scientifically proven that during the no-fly period following 9/11, the temperature of the earth heated by 2% - 3%. And beyond the con-trails, scientists are able to reduce that figure even further using proven solar geoengineering techniques. It's beginning to look as if blocking out the Sun is the only sane method to achieve the dramatic decrease in the world's temperature that humanity will require to survive climate change. So, should scientists block out the Sun to save all of humanity?

I wonder who this is.

Current odds on favourite is Paul Calf, although that is a bit obvious.

Would be a lot easier and eco friendly in the long run wouldn't it?

There was a programme on Global Dimming and the post 9/11 effect a good few years ago. It could have been an Horizon one before that series had a lobotomy.

Anyway, IIRC, even if you could block out 1 or 2 percent of the sun’s rays it wouldn’t simply cancel out Global Warming. It would cause unpredictable changes in global weather.

Doesn’t matter. We can’t even agree to lower carbon emissions. A vast ultra thin sunshade placed in orbit between us and the sun? Forget it.

Unpredictable weather would be disastrous Alberon, but as long as we have worldwide coverage then we'll be able to fully control the inhabited regions and spread the risks to non-inhabited zones. Humanity will be forced to work together to overcome climate injustice!

The video is probably on Youtube, but here's the transcript of the Horizon programme

There is no known use for the sun, so I say block it off.  Block it off and block it out.

I have 1/4oz of the primo government shit in my cupboard that I bought for novelty at legalization but have no time (or inclination really) to consume.

If you can make it to Toronto, it’s yours for free. You can’t say fairer than that.

I recon in the best instance it will just make things differently worse. Might even worsen existing problem for reasons we can't contemplate.

We should totally do it
