Scientists push for solar geoengineering to whiten our skies

The latest scheme to combat global warming is to increase the amount of chemtrails (aerosols) in the atmosphere. The thinking behind this endeavor is that this will scatter incoming solar energy from the Earth’s surface.
The side effect is that there will be an increased whitening of the sky during the daytime.  Researchers, Ben Kravitz and Ken Caldeira, from the Carnegie Institute for Science, have found that by blocking a mere 2% of sunlight would cause the sky to become 3 – 5 times brighter, and whiter.
Climate change alarmists assert that carbon dioxide emissions have caused the Earth’s surface temperature to rise. While volcanic eruptions emit small particles into the stratosphere that cool the temperature, these particles take years to fall to Earth.
Scientists are looking for a faster way to change the temperature of the Earth.  By using solar geoengineering scientists could “mimic” volcanic eruptions by constantly replenishing the stratosphere with nano particles to reflect sunlight back into space.
Kravtiz and Calderia, working with Douglas MacMartin from the California Institute of Technology, studied sky color ad brightness by utilizing a sulfate-based aerosols. They surmised that using these chemicals in the atmosphere would cause the daytime skies to be whiter and the sunsets to glow brighter.
Computer models showed that although the sky would remain blue, it would be a much lighter shade; especially over areas that experience more geoengineeing than others.
“These results give people one more thing to consider before deciding whether we really want to go down this road,” Kravitz said. “Although our study did not address the potential psychological impact of these changes to the sky, they are important to consider as well.”
The researchers claim that plants will grow more efficiently under the barrage of chemtrails. By muting light, and creating photosynthetic, or fake sunlight, the scientists assert that they could reduce the greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere, while offering the additional benefit to plants.
However, by compromising the amount of sunlight that comes through, the geoengineering process will have dramatic effects on the efficiency of solar power.
While scientists are finding new ways to justify using chemtrails in our skies, a recent study shows that pollution trapped in thunderclouds is making climate change worse.
