Originally proposed by Bill Gates’ company Intellectual Ventures, the StratoShield has been renamed the StratoCruiser and a team funded by Bill Gates’ FICER, Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Program Research Program, the Hewlett Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and other philanthropists are planning on the world’s largest experiment in dimming the sun. This e [...]

Recorded Wednesday, 10 January 2018: 8:45 AM Room 16AB (ACC) (Austin, Texas) Alan Robock, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ [email protected] http://envsci.rutgers.edu/~robock Geoengineering, also called climate engineering, has been proposed to address global warming, involving “solar radiation management (SRM)” by injecting particles into the stratospher [...]
If the recent clear sky “brightening” trend were due to cleaner air and fewer aerosols alone, it should be accompanied by an increase in direct downwelling shortwave radiation, one part of solar radiation reaching the surface directly from the Sun. That didn’t happen, Long reported during the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco. Instead, Long and [...]
“Our backs are against the wall and we must now start the process of preparing for geo-engineering,” the letter said. “We must do this in the knowledge that its chances of success are small and the risks of implementation are great.” The Paris Agreement commits countries to a system of volutary national climate action plans, which will be reviewed every five years in [...]
“Up to 50 Gigatons of methane could be rapidly released from under arctic ice” - Arctic Methane Emergency Group. As for appropriate interventions, there are a number of things to do immediately in parallel: Consider practices and regulations that are having, or risk having, a heating effect on the Arctic. A postponement of drilling in the Arctic would be sensibl [...]
Project LUCY aims to turn erupting arctic methane vents into artificial noctilucent cloud making volcanoes. Two high-powered microwaves, like the HAARP facility’s Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), compress atmospheric methane into nano diamond powder to reflect sunlight back into space. Also see: The ANGELS Proposal (Arctic Natural Gas Extraction Liquefacti [...]
Synthesis report: “Deliberate injections of sulphur-containing compounds into the stratosphere ... could have substantial unintended effects on the ozone layer.” [...]
E-PEACE, an experiment which while not identifying as SRM resulted in clear implications for marine cloud brightening (MCB) technology post hoc; E-PEACE combined a targeted aircraft campaign off the coast of Monterey in July and August 2011 with embedded ship and satellite observations (Fig. 2) and modeling studies. Atmospheric conditions in the northeastern Pacific d [...]
SPICE (Stratospheric Particle Injection for Climate Engineering) is an EPSRC, NERC and STFC co-funded 3 1/2 year collaboration between the University of Bristol, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford and the University of Edinburgh which began in October 2010. The SPICE project is investigating the effectiveness of Solar Radiation Management (SRM). SRM [...]
Bill Gates’ “Stratoshield” would later be reborn and readied for a test flight in 2018 as David Keith’s “Stratocruiser.” Called a Stratospheric Shield, or StratoShield for short, the system would deliver sulfur dioxide to an altitude of 30 kilometers in liquid form, through a very long hose supported by large, long-duration balloons [...]
The Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research (FICER) Grants for (GEOENGINEERING) research are provided to the University of Calgary from gifts made by Mr. Bill Gates from his personal funds. The activities of the Fund for Innovative Climate and Energy Research fall outside the scope of activities of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. FICER is not a Founda [...]
Results of a field experiment on studying solar radiation passing in the visible wavelength range are described with the model aerosol media created in the surface atmosphere. High-efficiency thermocondensation generators were used for creating model aerosol media. The index of refraction and an average size of the aerosol particles formed are close to those character [...]
Teller, Wood, and Hyde from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory publish three papers on climate change, geoengineering, and national security. Ken Caldeira simulates a future geoengineered world (with a computer model) in the second published paper (1999) giving his stamp of approval. Full story below: “The whole game,” David Victor pointed out, “is about establish [...]
Presidential report advises geoengineering solar radiation management (SRM) and hurricane modification. Investigated injecting condensation or freezing nuclei into the atmosphere to counteract the effects of increasing carbon dioxide. [...]
The Environmental Modification Accountability Act #ENMODAA
An Act To End Atmospheric Experimentation Without Notification
Our solution is an addendum to the international weather warfare ban requiring two things:
• TRANSPARENCY: a worldwide requirement to give 48 hour notice before modifying or experimenting in our sky or surrounding atmosphere.
• VERIFICATION: create a worldwide citizen-powered sensor network to monitor atmospheric conditions, record video footage of sky conditions, analyze rainfall samples, and display atmospheric aerosols in real-time on a publically available website.
