researchers believe that a fleet of specially designed aircraft could spray sulfate particles into the lower stratosphere to cool down our planet and offset the effects of climate change.
the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx) seeing a bag of carbonate dust released into the atmosphere 12 miles up. If that experiment proves successful, the researchers will move on to releasing the dust from planes. The researchers suggest that jets flying 12 miles up would complete over 60,000 missions in 15 years, starting with a fleet of eight and moving up to 100 planes.
Some scientists have suggested that such technology could be used a ‘stop gap’ to reduce temperatures while measures to limit CO2 emissions are put in place. But others have suggested that when the SRM was withdrawn, it could lead to rapid global warming in a phenomenon known as ‘termination shock’.

You know what? No!
Let's just work on making electric cars available to everyone, cutting pollution output, deforestation etc, etc, etc...
and never mind dumping crap into the atmosphere to block out the sun. Seriously?
Gates can pound sulfates in his ass. Too much risk.

This is part of the issue with allowing people to circumnavigate the law, similar to the wall being built with private money, i said it at the time it was a slippery slope, what happens when its a rich person doing something you dont agree with, nobody cared as it was to benefit Trump, well look what happens now.
Who needs the government thread
Most of ATS Trump fans were adamant that it was a great idea, maybe email them for an update as to how this would be a great idea
Who needs the government? Build the wall!

That was one of my first thoughts...
So we partially block the sun yay cooler temps, then we enter into a cooling period or a major volcanic eruption now temps are cold growing seasons are screwed and people starve because we choose to block the sun.
