Another New Study Points to the Dangers of Geoengineering the Climate

A recently published study from MIT casts doubt on the safety of the science of geoengineering and outlines potential dangers of the controversial field.

A new study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology is adding to the growing list of concerns around the controversial science of geoengineering. Researchers have found that geoengineering techniques could significantly change extratropical storms and introduce changes to the climate.

Geoengineering is a field of research investigating methods to deliberately manipulate the climate in an attempt to fight climate change. One of these methods is known as solar radiation management (SRM). Proposals for SRM suggest that scientists might be able to replicate the results seen from volcano eruptions. MIT reports:

“How can the world combat the continued rise in global temperatures? How about shading the Earth from a portion of the sun’s heat by injecting the stratosphere with reflective aerosols? After all, volcanoes do essentially the same thing, albeit in short, dramatic bursts: When a Vesuvius erupts, it blasts fine ash into the atmosphere, where the particles can linger as a kind of cloud cover, reflecting solar radiation back into space and temporarily cooling the planet.”

Researchers have proposed using planes, balloons, or blimps to spray various aerosols into the atmosphere in the hopes of reflecting sunlight and cooling the planet. This type of geoengineering is extremely controversial and previous studies have linked the technology to potentially dangerous outcomes for various parts of the planet.

Now a research team lead by Charles Gertler, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), has found that “solar geoengineering will not simply reverse climate change. Instead, it has the potential itself to induce novel changes in climate.” Gertler and his team have published the results in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Specifically, Gertler’s team found that solar geoengineering could alter what are known as extratropical storm tracks. MIT describes storm tracks as “the zones in the middle and high latitudes where storms form year-round and are steered by the jet stream across the oceans and land.” These storm tracks help create extratropical cyclones, and the strength of the storm tracks determine the severity and frequency of storms known as “nor’easters.” A nor’easter is a storm along the East Coast of North America in which the winds over the coastal area are typically from the northeast.

The researchers used a scenario of solar geoengineering known to climate scientists as experiment G1 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP). This project provides various geoengineering scenarios for scientists to run to determine various climate effects. G1 assumes an ideal scenario in which geoengineering blocks enough solar radiation to act as a counterbalance with the warming that would occur if carbon dioxide concentration quadruples.

The team found that the strength of storm tracks in both the northern and southern hemispheres weakened significantly in response to geoengineering. This would mean less powerful storms in the winter, but the researchers say the weaker storm tracks could “lead to stagnant conditions, particularly in summer, and less wind to clear away air pollution.” These changes in wind could also affect circulation of ocean water and the stability of ice sheets.

“A weakened storm track, in both hemispheres, would mean weaker winter storms but also lead to more stagnant weather, which could affect heat waves,” Gertler says. “Across all seasons, this could affect ventilation of air pollution. It also may contribute to a weakening of the hydrological cycle, with regional reductions in rainfall. These are not good changes, compared to a baseline climate that we are used to.”

Gertler further stated that his work indicates that “solar geoengineering is not reversing climate change, but is substituting one unprecedented climate state for another.” In the conclusion to their study the researchers note that “there likely exist other consequences of solar geoengineering that the simulations studied here are unable to simulate.”

Previous Studies Also Show Danger

Geoengineering

The concerns surrounding geoengineering are widely known to anyone following the research. Claims that geoengineering could be employed without significantly altering the planet or without making things worse were rebuffed by a number of experts.

Alan Robock, a climate and aerosols expert at Rutgers University who previously conducted research for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has said that researchers claiming that there will be no significant effect do not take into account the reality that geoengineering may have additional side effects, like warming certain parts of the atmosphere, changing atmospheric circulation, or affecting the ozone layer.

“I do not agree that ’no area will be significantly worse off under a solar geo-engineering scenario’,” Robock has said. “Worse as compared to what? If we rapidly begin mitigation now, that is rapidly reduce our CO2 emissions to zero by switching our power to wind and solar, we will be much better off than a business-as-usual future, or one with geoengineering.”

Interestingly, Robock has previously stated that he believes the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) may already be using geoengineering techniques as a weapon of war. In 2015, while speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Robock stated he was phoned by two men claiming to be from the CIA, asking whether or not it was possible for hostile governments to use geoengineering, or mass manipulation of the weather, against the United States.

The public and scientific community should examine all of the available evidence which currently shows geoengineering might lead to potential loss of blue skies, lower crop yields, and increases in land and water temperature.

According to a study published in Nature, geoengineering could lead to lower crop yields. This study is not the first to point out the dangers of beginning geoengineering programs. According to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, if geoengineering programs were started and then suddenly halted, the planet could see an immediate rise in temperatures, particularly over land.

Another study published in February 2015 by an international committee of scientists stated that geoengineering techniques are not a viable alternative to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to combat the effects of climate change. The committee report called for further research and understanding of various geoengineering techniques, including carbon dioxide removal schemes and solar-radiation management (SRM), before implementation. The scientists found that SRM techniques are likely to present “serious known and possible unknown environmental, social, and political risks, including the possibility of being deployed unilaterally.”

In October 2018, the United Nations IPCC issued a report that essentially called for climate engineering as the “last ditch” option to save humanity from environmental disaster. This option is one step closer to reality now that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is scheduled to receive $4 million in funding. The more geoengineering becomes a reality the more that calls are being made for a global governance framework to guide these programs. It’s becoming apparent that calls for geoengineering will serve as a gateway to global government.

Coincidentally, this dangerous science has been funded in part by none other than Bill Gates. As TLAV previously reported, since 2007 Gates had given $4.5 million to study geoengineering methods for altering the stratosphere to reflect solar energy, techniques to filter carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere, and brightening ocean clouds. Geoengineering is the deliberate mass scale manipulation of the weather for the stated purpose of reducing heating on the planet.

The Guardian previously noted that Gates gives “an undisclosed sum” to geoengineering proponent and Harvard professor David Keith. Gates also owns majority stake in Keith’s geoengineering company, Carbon Engineering. Prominent geoengineering researcher Ken Caldeira says he receives $375,000 a year from Gates and works for Intellectual Ventures, a private geoengineering research company part-owned by Gates and run by Nathan Myhrvold, former head of technology at Microsoft.

If this field of research poses such a grave danger to the planet why are technocrats like Bill Gates funding these efforts? Are these efforts related to Gates’ eugenics agenda? We leave that determination up to the reader.

  1. If you study Earths Climate over the last 1 million years you will see we are in an Ice Age. The. Climate cycles between cold glacial periods (about 100 K years) where CO2 plummets to levels barely sufficient for plants to survive, and warmer interglacial periods (about 10 K years). Our current interglacial period is almost 12K years long.

    Perhaps man is keeping this one going longer or its just a longer cycle within normal variance. Either way, our future is a cold one.

    Yet instead of preparing for the next glacial period which would likely reduce population by 80% or more, they have us convinced the opposite is occurring. The solutions they propose will tip us into the next glacial period. They will have their luxury ranches in the warmer climates, with enough robots and slaves to serve and entertain them.

  2. Geoengineering has been ongoing for at least four decades. Look up Project Clover Leaf which was begun quietly with the 1994 Hughes Aircraft patent for Welsbach Seeding For Reduction Of Global Warming.

    Welsbach Seeding called for spreading highly reflective materials in the atmosphere to reflect back into space 1-2 percent of incoming sunlight and thus slow down “global warming.”

    However, it was also about beginning to create a more conductive atmosphere in preparation for Bernard Eastlund’s High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HARRP) already under construction in Alaska.

    The reflective material (10 microns) to be added to auxiliary fuel tanks was the highly conductive compound aluminum oxide. Lawrence Livermore National Labs priced the program at US 1 billion per annum ( in 1994 dollars).

    By the late 1990’s, aerial grids were being laid over chosen cities and regions of the US and other NATO nations.

    In 1996, the military went public with two documents that referenced what Project Cloverleaf was up to: the Pentagon paper “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025” in Air Force 2025 , which called the chemical whitening effect “cirrus shielding”, and US Space Command’s vision for 2020 calling for “full spectrum dominance of space, land, sea, and air.”

    And the rest is history. Look up at the skies on a supposed clear day. No more azure, clear blue skies of earlier days. A milky, web-like film turns the clear sky to baby blue. Persistent contrails slowly spread, adding to the white webbing that has become an ever present sight in our skies.

  3. These people are paid liars. If you spray toxic shit into the air we breath, it will kill us. Aluminum, barium, strontium and whatever other crap they put in it. Probably the covid 19 strain. It also continues to help create wildfires never seen before. They have been doing this since before Vietnam. They are criminally insane because they are doing this to themselves as well. WAKE UP…LOOK UP.

  4. Hello Eric Jacobson. You are quite correct. Geoengineering has been ongoing since 1947, and planetary heating (not cooling) is the nasty end result.

    Public ignorance is truly beyond belief. The skies are completely obliterated with chemical tracks over many cities and countries, yet no one seems to notice they’ve been lied to. The tracks are definitely not “contrails”.

    Both GeoengineeringWatch.org and ClimateViewer News supply excellent information regarding this crime against humanity.
