Will GeoEngineering save us from Climate Change?

Friday, June 6th, 2008

A scheme to combat climate change by injecting massive amounts of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere via “artificial volcanoes” has been proposed by experts at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. The method, which sets to mimic the “natural” phenomenon of Global Dimming, will look to create clouds of sulfur dioxide or hydrogen sulfide that will reflect heat back into space.

However the method is not without its risks, and is expected to badly damage the Ozone Lair and set back its healing process by almost 70 years. The method will also not address the other effects of excess CO2 in the atmosphere, such as ocean acidification.

A Vision of Post-War Earth

A Vision of Post-WWII Earth This 1942 map of a “New World Moral Order” was created by U.S military minds as a vision of the planet once they “crush and completely destroy” the axis nations, noting that “For the reasons of history, economic structure, favourable geography and the welfare of mankind, the U.S.A must, altruistically, assume the leadership of the newly established, democratic world order.” and that “the invincibility of the U.S.A as a military, naval and air power, shall be the major prerequisite.”

Outlined in the map is a plan to bring a final end to the age of colonialism, and usher in an age of continent sized power block, supervised by the U.N and the “Supreme Military and Economic Council”. But like some conspiracy theorists wet dream, there is a dark side. The axis powers are to be “hermetically and indefinitely quarantined” in nation sized ghettos, and their numbers reduced with a tightly enforced “population control policy” and their leaders subject to an “unforgettable” punishment. And taking a leaf from the Communist’s book, every natural resources and the entire logistical infrastructure if the planet would become nationalised, becoming the property of the new super-states, and through them, to be “shared” by the global government.
