Should We Engineer The Climate?
This seems like a totally great idea:
A startup says it’s begun releasing particles into the atmosphere, in an effort to tweak the climate
Make Sunsets is already attempting to earn revenue for geoengineering, a move likely to provoke widespread criticism.
A startup claims it has launched weather balloons that may have released reflective sulfur particles in the stratosphere, potentially crossing a controversial barrier in the field of solar geoengineering.
Geoengineering refers to deliberate efforts to manipulate the climate by reflecting more sunlight back into space, mimicking a natural process that occurs in the aftermath of large volcanic eruptions. In theory, spraying sulfur and similar particles in sufficient quantities could potentially ease global warming.
In future work, Make Sunsets hopes to increase the sulfur payloads, add telemetry equipment and other sensors, eventually move to reusable balloons, and publish data following the launches.
The company is already attempting to earn revenue from the cooling effects of future flights. It is offering to sell $10 “cooling credits” for releasing one gram of particles in the stratosphere—enough, it asserts, to offset the warming effect of one ton of carbon for one year.
“What I want to do is create as much cooling as quickly as I responsibly can, over the rest of my life, frankly,” Iseman says, adding later that they will deploy as much sulfur in 2023 as “we can get customers to pay us” for.
At least there is one voice of sanity:
“The current state of science is not good enough … to either reject, or to accept, let alone implement” solar geoengineering, wrote Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative, in an email. The initiative is calling for oversight of geoengineering and other climate-altering technologies, whether by governments, international accords or scientific bodies. “To go ahead with implementation at this stage is a very bad idea,” he added, comparing it to Chinese scientist He Jiankui’s decision to use CRISPR to edit the DNA of embryos while the scientific community was still debating the safety and ethics of such a step.

Now let us compare this to the “global warming” argument presented over two decades ago.
Back in 2001, we had university courses saying that sulfur dioxide causes acid rain and global warming:
There are many environmental issues plaguing our world today. Among them are global warming and the depletion of the ozone layer. One problem that many people have not thought about too much in recent years is acid rain. Acid rain was thought of as a problem of the 1980s. Many people believe that it is a problem that has been solved. However, this is not the case. Acid rain is still a problem in the year 2001. There are measures to control acid rain, yet the earth still needs more time to recover from acid rain’s harsh effects.
Another compound that is involved with the formation of acid rain is sulfur dioxide. Sulfur dioxide is a by-product, which is formed by burning fossil fuels. It reacts with water to form sulfurous acid.
The sulfur dioxide can also further oxidizes in the atmosphere and form sulfur trioxide. This then reacts with water to produce sulfuric acid.
Now, we think it’s great to attempt climate geoengineering by pumping the skies full of sulfur dioxide.
The positions summarized:
- 2001: Sulfur dioxide causes climate change (acid rain and ozone layer depletion).
- 2022: Sulfur dioxide cures climate change.
- 2001: Sulfur dioxide is going to kill us all through global warming.
- 2022: Sulfur dioxide is the best solution for global cooling.
We truly know nothing.
I am often at a loss for words regarding how stupid our species is, and how prideful and intelligent we think we are. But this one just might reach new heights.
The average person truly believes that our science, technology, and understanding far surpasses where we actually are. We don’t understand a miniscule fraction of what we think we do. This is true about all topics, not just the climate. That is why it is so insane to listen to these “experts“. They have no idea, and they often do complete reversals of prior “consensus” positions.
On a separate note—For the longest time, it was a conspiracy that the weather was being geoengineered. However, if some random company in Mexico now has the technology, the state has definitely already had it for decades. Which means that another conspiracy theory bites the dust, I suppose.
I’m now waiting for the news that they are testing a manmade creation of a black hole in Guatemala. Or perhaps manufacturing a virus that could eliminate all sentient life in Nicaragua. Wouldn’t exactly be surprising, at this point. Especially considering that China already publically created an artificial sun and we’re now launching sulfur into the sky.
I find it highly probable that our species will not survive the full technological revolution.
We keep trying to be the Creator. One day, that Creator will remind us of our creature status.
