Harvard scientists intend to block out the sun’s rays from earth as a way to defeat climate change. The geoengineering project is an attempt to cool the earth’s overall temperature.
I’m not kidding, this is real.
The name of the project is SCoPEx, or, Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment, and it will cost roughly $3 million for initial testing. By “testing,” that’s to say that this is no longer a concept, it’s a real thing.
If you are wondering where all the money for this project is deriving from, look no further than Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
And yes, we reported on Harvard’s ambition to throw shade at our sun months ago, but we hoped that somehow rational minds would prevail.
They aren’t prevailing, so all aboard.
Harvard Blocking Sun Concept Uses Balloon
The Harvard scientists will launch a maneuverable balloon into the stratosphere above the United States southwest region. The balloon will then programmatically release calcium carbonate into the stratosphere. The initial test is slated for the spring of 2019 (so yes, within a year).
Scientists are basing the working concept on past volcanic eruptions, namely, the massive eruption of Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991. Pinatubo’s eruption blew 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere. As you likely guessed, that sulfur dioxide formed a coating around the earth and caused a universal lowering of the earth’s core temperature (specifically, the earth cooled 0.5 °C as a result of the sulfur dioxide coating).
Climate Change Hysteria Is Propelling Geoengineering
Let’s be honest, evolution based on science isn’t always bad. Pharmaceutical drugs save lives. Doctors inappropriately prescribing and over-prescribing pharmaceutical drugs damage our society (see the antibiotic collapse, the opioid addiction issue, and SSRI medications and Ritalin being linked to mass shootings).
Geoengineering probably has good features, like helping to produce rain for drought-stricken farmers.
But blocking the sun based on a controversial climate change ideology? And yes, see the Paris riots if you don’t think climate change policies are controversial.
As it stands, blocking the sun is now an acceptable concept by world leaders. And for that, we should all be fearful.
Today’s media have given the sun a bad name. It kills us with skin cancer. It warms the earth…too much. But the sun’s the only reason we are here, so maybe “science” should slow its roll a bit before we decide to manipulate the sun’s rays.

Most world governments are zoned in on reducing greenhouse gas emissions or extracting CO2 from the atmosphere. These two concepts are commonly pitched in unison with higher taxation (again, Paris, Paris…). That’s what the entire the Paris Agreement debacle involved. The concept of blocking out the sun is newer to the spectrum of acceptable absurdity to stop “climate change.” The concept has been around for decades, but its largely been dismissed even by the most climate change oriented of government officials and scientists.
Pictured below is one of Harvard’s illustrations of our evil sun being blocked.
Computer Models Have No Idea The Consequences Of Blocking The Sun
Worse more, computer models have no idea what will happen once they start testing the theory. Hence, the “controlled experiment” using calcium carbonate particles.
Will this result in more rain? Less rain? Dearth farmlands? More fires? A zombie apocalypse? Who knows? They don’t.
If you watch the news, you probably think the sun just serves to burn humans alive. But the sun actually does some pretty important stuff, like fuel all life on earth.
A recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report estimates for the reduced price of $10 billion per year, we can reduce the global temperature by 1.5 degrees Celcius.
Zimbabwean villages may dry up into famine and drought or flood away in biblical rains, but at least the evil sun will be tamed by scientists who “are pretty sure” they know what’s up.
Bill Nye The Science Guy pitched that he wanted to load up our oceans with ping pong balls as a way to reflect the sun back to..the sun? I’m not sure, maybe Nye is talking about bubbles, or ping pong balls, I can’t keep up with such absurdity.
But for these Harvard scientists, the concept of reflecting the sun back to the sun is just not efficient enough. So now we are at the point of just blocking it all together.
Maybe once the sun is blocked and nuclear winter sets in, we can all breath a course sigh of relief. The sun’s been attempting to kill us now for 40 years. Finally, we will be in the safety and comfort of complete darkness and famine. At least you’ll not need anymore sunscreen.
