Artificial Volcano To Cool The Earth?

September 3, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Here’s the plan: A giant garden hose 12.4 miles long, tethered to a ship and attached to a 650-foot (about two football fields) balloon, which will pump out hundreds of tons of chemical particles into the stratosphere to mimic a volcano.

Why? Because even though a volcano is hot, the volcanic ash reflects sunlight. Scientists want to mimic that action to combat increasing global temperatures.

So researchers in the United Kingdom are testing out their theory in October with a smaller scale device that will just pump out water at a lower altitude. They say it won’t change the weather but will be proof of their concept.”
