The Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), launched by Harvard University scientists, hopes to examine the effects of spraying calcium carbonate (CaCO3) dust into the atmosphere — a sun-reflecting aerosol that may offset the effects of global warming.

See y’all on the snowpiercer lads

So… smog? Maybe less toxic than city/industrial smog but still.

Yaaay now we can continue extracting unsustainable amounts of resources from the earth and everything can go back to being totes fine

Such a bad idea.

Again, these temperature decreases bring with them serious risks. Freezing temperatures in 1815 led to failed crops in near-famine conditions. Br*tish scientists have cited stratospheric aerosols from volcanic eruptions in Alaska and Mexico as the potential cause of drought in Africa’s Sahel region. Major disruption of the global climate could bring unintended consequences, negatively impacting highly populated regions and engineering another refugee crisis.

finally, I can go for a walk in the middle of the day without fearing the sun.
