In order to combat Global Warming scientists have come up with the idea if they were to inject sulfur into the atmosphere it would counter act the
effects that our fossile fuels produce.
One way to curb global warming is to purposely shoot sulfur into the atmosphere, a scientists suggested today.
The burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. It also releases sulfur that cools the planet by
reflecting solar radiation away from Earth.

Sounds to me like someone is trying to rob Peter to pay Paul.
Back in the 70's everyone was in an uproar about all the coal buring that was going on because it was releasing too much sulfur into the air. They
were convinced that it was going to cause an ice age. So what'd they do? They outlawed Chloral Floral Carbons (CFC's) because we didn't want to sever
our dependancy on Fossile fuel and nuclear engery was "too dangerous" to use.
Now that we've flooded the atmosphere with carbon dioxide they want to shoot sulfur to counter act it.
Awhhh just start producing CFS's again and we'll all be just fine *pffffttt*
