SOLAR RADIATION MANAGEMENT involves intentionally introduced atmospheric schemes that would add particles, chemicals, or gases to our upper atmosphere to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth. These schemes also include cloud whitening experiments (using salt particles), and putting more water vapor (a greenhouse gas), into the atmosphere to create more artificial cloud cover .
NASA research studies show that increasingly persistent jet contrails may turn into "man-made clouds" (or white haze), and are "trapping warmth in the atmosphere and exacerbating global warmingAny change in global cloud cover may contribute to long-term changes in the Earth's climate" No current U.S. legislation addresses water vapor and aviation impacts on the global atmosphere. In addition, climate scientists are working to add more pollutants to the atmosphere in order to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reaching the Earth.
Vitamin D: SRM schemes will reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth. We are already experiencing human health problems, like rickets in children, from jets leaving persistent jet contrails that turn into man-made clouds exacerbating global dimming. Many illnesses can be traced back to Vitamin D deficiencies.
PHOTOSYNTHESIS is required for the majority of life on Earth to exist, along with healthy trees, and food crop production. When cloud cover and reduced sunlight is not present crop production drops.
In a Press Release Dated December of 2002 titled: "GEOENGINEERING TOO RISKY" A Lawrence Livermore Laboratory Press release warns, "There are many reasons why geoengineering is not a preferred option for climate stabilization..." These prescriptions include risks of global "system failure" and the "unpredictable responses" of Earth's climate system to large-scale human intervention"
