Scientists: Cloud Geoengineering Could Save Our Climate

A controversial idea is becoming popular amongst some scientists, hoping to reverse the effects of global warming. The idea consists of futuristic ships to shoot salt water high into the sky over the oceans. The process would create clouds that reflect

The problem isn't that this idea is complicated or expensive. The problem is our government at present appears to be committed to doing nothing until the situation is so out of control that even elaborate measures such as this will be too little, too late. The world is changing and will change even more so because we have already missed the window for avoiding all consequences. We have even missed the window for minimal consequences. But, we are going to be in a great deal of trouble if we miss the next window, because it is for the survival of civilization and of our species.

in this present scenario as per as science and technology is concerned n yet much more to add to it there nothing that cant be fixed we only need the will power to change climatic condition for that our government must act not preach........ n provide sufficiently enough resources to cope with environment pollution control

As long as they are thinking of this idea
much more equally should be done to reduce
the human population. Also, plant, plant &
plant more of anything green

Wherever you go there once was a forest.
Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.
Trees are the lungs of the earth.

Just a thought.....The more man tries to make
life easier the more messed us Mother Earth
becomes. I'd love to live back in 1884 or before
because life was really simple & people really
knew one another whether they liked them or not.

Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.

Thanks to HAARP and Chemtrails we've efd up the ionosphere and the atmosphere; coupled with the oil haze from deep water drilling and the all the crap from fracking; now we need to create clouds?

Chemtrails here, almost everyday for years now, agree with Michael K.~maybe a novel approach would be to Stop putting chemicals everywhere. I would enjoy to see some real clouds, myself..........

Agree with Bette, population has be be talked about. People need to be educated about it now. Most do not know at all.

Better to upset some people now with unpopular topics, than live (what could be in store for humanity), in the near future. It would be good if Everyone on Earth was on the C2 news, tomorrow:).

Noted, thank you Cher.

The most puzzling thing to me is
when all these small brained big
shot idiots make the decisions to
mess up the earths land, seas and
air all the more where is it do they
think they are going to go when the
sky and all else begins to kill us
all off?
Do these great thinkers have a secrete
planet to jet off too?

Real clouds please...Nature does it better

"Geo-Engineering " by greedy Greenwashing, Corrupt Military PsychoManiacs calling themselves "Climate scientists" ?!

NO THANK YOU.

Just cause it sounds Futuristic does not mean it is woah PLEASE, RESEARCH, EDUCATE YOURSELVES ABOUT THIS, THINK HARD, YOUR KIDS WILL HAVE SO LIVE WITH IT LONG AFTER YOU ARE DEAD before you promote, support, endorse these things, highly dangerous haywired ideas, agendas !

Investigate why - HAARP, DARPA etc and our number 1 resident genocidal PSYCHOTIC Bill Gates has become the world's leading funders of research into geoengineering...?!

Well, of course, we could always do nothing...and of course, everything will die as the climate grows increasingly hostile to life. While this idea of cloud formation may be too frightening or futuristic, the reality is that what we know is going to happen is far more terrifying. We have missed our chances to do smaller, less dramatic "gestures" to save this planet. When an answer finally comes, it will involve not only government taking drastic measures, perhaps even cloud-seeding, to save us, we are all going to have to radically change and restrict how we use energy. Every item that consumes energy needs to be looked at critically. How do each of us justify the energy we consume each and every day, especially given the peril to which said consumption contributes for this planet .

Bette M You are doing a fine job of monopolizing conversation. Do you not think the power it would take to do an operation like this will not itself contribute to 'pollution' ? Alternative thought is being suppressed. Climate Scientist JoNova has her website debunking conventional UN propaganda promoting a worldwide tax scheme has been attacked - and conversation from scientists has been misreported for years by taking normal caution towards unprovable ideas and politically posing it as work of paid polluters. Not that I doubt that happens as well - but it defeats normal assessments of scientific method.

Mine too...arrived at with research and thought as well. And yes, one really would wonder at the mindset that would spread Core-Exit 9500 in the Gulf of Mexico to augment a gusher drilled to the depth of the Mariana Trench. Or develop Agent Orange and Depleted Uranium munitions. But AGW is not fairly reported and even the caveats by the IPCC itself are lost in hype.

they say that but it seems to have had the opposite effect. That's their explanation for what Chemtrails are for. And yes, I have heard about their idea of pumping water into the atmosphere along with aluminium to "reflect the sunlight to make up for the Arctic dimming" etc. Seriously, that can't be good.
