Climate Kooks Try to Impose Nuclear Winter

We used to live in fear that nuclear war would first lay waste to our cities and then impose an ice age, as all the detritus thrown up into the atmosphere would block out the sun’s beneficent rays for years to come. We don’t need nuclear weapons anymore. We have liberals. They have already laid waste to our cities through policies that have reduced them to Third World war zones. As for nuclear winter,

A startup claims it has launched weather balloons that may have released reflective sulfur particles in the stratosphere, potentially crossing a controversial barrier in the field of solar geoengineering.

Geoengineering refers to deliberate efforts to manipulate the climate by reflecting more sunlight back into space, mimicking a natural process that occurs in the aftermath of large volcanic eruptions. In theory, spraying sulfur and similar particles in sufficient quantities could potentially ease global warming.

Even assuming there is anything wrong with the climate,

Little is known about the real-world effect of such deliberate interventions at large scales, but they could have dangerous side effects.

Normally real-world effects are not a concern, because climate change pertains to the unreal world of progressive ideology. However, the real world could get dragged into the mischief if stunts like this have a deleterious effect.

Some researchers who have long studied the technology are deeply troubled that the company, Make Sunsets, appears to have moved forward with launches from a site in Mexico without any public engagement or scientific scrutiny. It’s already attempting to sell “cooling credits” for future balloon flights that could carry larger payloads.

For years, gullible liberals have been purchasing virtue in the form of carbon credits. There is money in moonbattery:

The company says it has raised $750,000 in funding from Boost VC and Pioneer Fund, among others, and that its early investors have also been purchasing cooling credits.

Luke Iseman, cofounder and CEO of Make Sunsets, presents himself as a true believer in global warmism:

“We joke slash not joke that this is partly a company and partly a cult,” he says.

This is scary:

A 2018 white paper raised the possibility that an environmental, humanitarian, or other type of group [e.g., terrorist] could use this simple balloon approach to carry out a distributed, do-it-yourself geoengineering scheme.

Given the scale made possible by virtually infinite inflationary spending, this is scarier:

Biden signed Congress’ “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022” on March 15, providing funding for a five-year research plan to be coordinated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

If a 5-year plan sounds familiar, you are probably thinking of the USSR under Stalin.

The OTSP will come up with a “scientific assessment of solar and other rapid climate interventions in the context of near-term climate risks and hazards.”

Stratospheric aerosol injection, the method employed by Make Sunsets, is among the various solar geoengineering interventions the OTSP will study.

The cult is in control.

You thought Covid policy caused a lot of pointless damage? Wait until our moonbat rulers fully implement their climate policy.
