UN Pondering on Geo Engineering to Solve Climate Change
“Geo-engineering”, a method of modifying the earth’s natural balance to stem climate change, is being evaluated by the United Nations and includes preposterous ideas such as genetically modified lighter-colored crops, putting aerosols into the stratosphere and putting iron fillings into the ocean, according to leaked documents from the UN climate science body.
It’s a move many think is simply a result of countries being unable to reach a consensus at the global climate talks, but many western scientists (including some from both the US and the UK) will outline a series of ideas designed to manipulate the world’s climate to reduce carbon emissions.
The papers, which were leaked from inside the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) preceded a meeting in Lima, Peru. The papers show the thoughts of approximately sixty scientists on radical measures to manipulate the climate, which include: depositing massive quantities of iron fillings into the oceans, bio-engineering crops to be a lighter color to reflect sunlight and suppressing cirrus clouds. It’s also expected that proposals for spraying sea water into clouds to reflect sunlight away from the earth, burying charcoal, painting streets and roofs white on a vast scale, adding lime to oceans, will all be proposed.
It should be said that while the meeting is designed to put forth these concepts, it’s widely accepted that all parties involved understand the need for extensive further research on all of them. Of course (and rightfully) protestors are abounding already. Recently, more than a hundred and twenty-five environment, development and human rights groups from forty countries published a letter to Rajendra Pachauri, the Nobel Prize-winning head of the IPCC, stating that the UN had no mandate to consider the legality or political sustainability of using geo-engineering.
