A chemical recipe for disaster?
‘SUN BLOCKING’ DANGERS
Geoengineering will likely affect food productivity on parts of Earth in dramatically different ways, benefiting some areas, and adversely impacting others, according to projections prepared by researchers.
Writing in the journal, Nature Food, the team reports the results of new computer models simulating varying climate scenarios and their impacts over time on the production of the world’s four major food crops: corn, rice, soybeans and wheat.
The team worked with scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, employing the federal laboratory’s computer model that simulates atmospheric, land and crop growth.
The work produced 11 different climate scenarios of a future Earth, eight of them formed by differing levels of climate intervention (geoengineering), all of them which would produce different temperatures, rainfall, sunlight and carbon dioxide emissions.
Stratospheric aerosol intervention (SAI) strategies, or ‘sun blocking’ geoengineering, was one of these.
The SAI scenario involves spraying sulfur dioxide gas into the stratosphere. By placing a “cloud” in the upper atmosphere continuously, the process would ‘shield the Earth from the sun’, ‘cooling it’.
But by doing so, the researchers discovered, the mad scientists will likely cause more problems.
“Not one of the climate intervention scenarios we analysed benefits everyone,” said Brendan Clark from Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS), and lead author on the study.
Furthermore, the models showed that if these techniques were allowed to continue, marked differences in agricultural productivity would be found depending on where a country is positioned on the map.
For example, atmospheric sulfur spraying favours food production in the temperate regions of the Western Hemisphere, including Mexico, all of Central America, Caribbean and the top of South America.
But because of this, countries in the Eastern Hemisphere would be negatively impacted.
The Eastern Hemisphere includes most of Africa, parts of the Middle East, most of India, all of Southeast Asia, most of Australia and most of the island nations of Oceania.
Meaning, based on this study, ‘sun blocking’ experiments currently being carried out by the United States could drastically change our food production patterns here at home.
“Are we willing to live with all these potential impacts to have less global warming? That’s the question we’re trying to ask here,” said Alan Robock, a Distinguished Professor of Climate Science in the Department of Environmental Sciences at SEBS, and a co-author of the study.
“We’re trying to quantify each of the potential risks and benefits so we can make informed decisions in the future.”
Meanwhile, “uncontrolled climate change” (without geoengineering), the models reveal, will favour crop production in the cold, high-latitude areas, such as Canada, Russia, Scandinavia and Scotland.
“Our results highlight the challenges in defining ‘globally optimal’ strategies,” said Lili Xia from the Department of Environmental Sciences at SEBS, and a co-author of the study.
This study follows previous investigations that warned unleashing ‘solar shading’ could have ‘unintended’ consequences, such as reducing crop yields and a re-emergence of diseases like malaria.
The authors of this new study stress just how complicated this discussion is in their conclusions.
Lili Xia continued: “It’s very complicated and it’s hard to reach a conclusion, such as saying whether climate intervention is good or bad.”
“I don’t know at what point people will reach a decision. But, for me, I feel like it’s almost impossible.”
Yes, an impossible dystopian vision that may not only adversely impact different parts of the world, but may also cause conflicts with regions ultimately looking to have total control of these patterns.
PRELUDE TO CONFLICT?
Despite all of these concerns, governments are pushing ahead with solar geoengineering.
One interesting note from this new study, besides the impacts solar geoengineering could have to parts of the world, is the notion that this reality could itself lead to a ‘war to control the weather”.
According to the researchers:
“Nations may have different ideas of what constitutes an optimal global temperature, which could lead to conflicts. It would be like people fighting over the thermostat in a house, but on a global scale.”
We have previously asked this question here on the website:
Can type of experiment even be really be done by agents like the U.S. with no objections?
Or, is this a pretext to drag us into further geopolitical ‘conflict’?
Recently, I read an article that detailed how spies are concerned solar geoengineering may spark a conflict between nations:
Without international agreements on this dangerous practice, we are essentially in the wild west here.
Perhaps there are plenty of opponents that may want to seize these crop-growing benefits for themselves, including China.
Let’s not forget that China has openly used weather manipulation as a weapon (and threat) of war against India:
In recent years, China has also expanded their public weather modification programs to unprecedented scopes (millions of killiometres of capabilities), rivalling those established by the United States.
It is not entirely unreasonable to assume that some type of conflict could arise in the near future as more modelling comes out forecasting the ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ of geoengineering activities.
Furthermore, Dr. T.J. Coles has previously explored on this website how the military-industrial-complex does use chemically-enhanced jet trails as a means to disrupt signal patterns.
Indeed, we may see these new radical forms of ‘climate intervention’ not only wreck havoc on the natural ecosystems of the planet in the coming decades, but it could also lead to techniques being weaponised.
The only sane solution is to halt these practices before any of this is allowed to occur.
Geoengineering is no longer a ‘conspiracy theory’, it is a real-world threat to society.
It’s time to speak up in objection!
