(CNN)Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth's atmosphere.
The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth's lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

Stratospheric aerosol injection would involve spraying sulfate particles into the Earth's stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles.
Despite the technology being undeveloped and with no existing aircraft suitable for adaptation, the researchers say that "developing a new, purpose-built tanker with substantial payload capabilities would neither be technologically difficult nor prohibitively expensive."
They estimate the total cost of launching a hypothetical system in 15 years' time at around $3.5 billion, with running costs of $2.25 billion a year over a 15-year period.
The report does, however, acknowledge that the technique is purely hypothetical.

Release of new climate report moved up from December to Friday after Thanksgiving

"We make no judgment about the desirability of SAI," the report states. "We simply show that a hypothetical deployment program commencing 15 years hence, while both highly uncertain and ambitious, would indeed be technically possible from an engineering perspective. It would also be remarkably inexpensive."
The researchers also acknowledge potential risks: coordination between multiple countries in both hemispheres would be required, and stratospheric aerosol injection techniques could jeopardize crop yields, lead to droughts or cause extreme weather.
The proposals also don't address the issue of rising greenhouse gas emissions, which are a leading cause of global warming.

No G20 countries are meeting climate targets, says report

And despite the conviction of the report's authors, other experts were skeptical.
"From the point of view of climate economics, solar radiation management is still a much worse solution than greenhouse gas emissions: more costly and much more risky over the long run," said Philippe Thalmann of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, an expert in the economics of climate change.
David Archer of the Department of Geophysical Science at the University of Chicago said, "The problem with engineering climate in this way is that it's only a temporary Band-Aid covering a problem that will persist essentially forever, actually hundreds of thousands of years for fossil fuel CO2 to finally go away naturally.
"It will be tempting to continue to procrastinate on cleaning up our energy system, but we'd be leaving the planet on a form of life-support. If a future generation failed to pay their climate bill they would get all of our warming all at once."
Let's just inject even more chemicals into the air, that will definitely fix things and not make them worse!

This was suggested about a decade ago and everyone said it was crazy. It's funny that it's being seriously considered now, but of course it's going to be a terrible idea.
Alternatively, black out the entire Middle East for a gag.

Ya know I have been mulling this over but in a purely logical Thanos strain of thought, we should really ask the question...should we try and stop global warming?

Like...lets examine the generally agreed upon map of what areas will be fucked up the worst


Basically climate change/global warming stand to fix overpopulation in a pretty damn decisive way in the next few decades given how badly affected the most overpopulated third world sprawls will be by it. Between famines, civil wars, disease, and just general death, the four horsemen stand to rack up a decent 2-4 billion toll of the most pollution happy per capita nations on the planet

Hell, if the civilized world collaberates than maybe they could "accidentally" wreck saudi arabia's infrastructure and cause them to go into the red and thus remove that fucking cyst from the global rectum

I mean obviously the human cost is going to be horrific but....cmon. Humanity can stand to lose africa and india and the middle east, anne frankly south america needs a good culling

There's only one problem with your plan. What if the third-worlders try to migrate to the nice countries and shit everything up.

Hmm....that would indeed be a problem...

If ONLY the west would take a massive swing to the anti immigration hard right so much so that fucking hillary clinton starts begging europe to build a damn wall....

Jokes and speculation aside, the more I think of it, the more I suspect that this might actually be a geopolitical policy in the west for the past decade or so. Would also explain why china is desperately trying to go green given how their east coast is shaping up to be horribly hit.

But then the past 2 years have demonstrated pretty decisively that the establishment couldnt conspire a fucking pizza delivery let alone a subtle genocide of the entire third world
