A University of Cambridge professor claims refreezing the Earth’s polar regions and capturing carbon dioxide from out of the atmosphere would roll back the harms of global warming.
Sir David King, a former chief scientific adviser to the UK government, said that time “is no longer on our side” to tackle climate change.
“What we continue to do, what we do that is new, and what we plan to do over the next 10 to 12 years will determine the future of humanity for the next 10,000,” he said.
Other ideas could include spraying salt water high into the atmosphere in the Arctic to “whiten” clouds there and reflect heat back into space, as well as growing more vegetation to remove carbon dioxide from the air. But the cost to research and implement these techniques safely is proving the biggest hurdle.
Unprecedented changes are required by society to prevent global temperatures rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius according to the UN’s intergovernmental panel on climate change. The panel called for countries to cut carbon emissions by 45% by 2030 and to net zero by 2050.
The UK recently went eight days without using any coal power after decades of investment in alternative energy sources, the longest run without burning the fossil fuel since the industrial revolution during the late 1800s.
There will be no electricity in the UK supplied by coal power at all by 2025, and the government believes the last coal plant in the UK could close as early as 2022 due to emissions charges.
One thought on “University Professor Claims ‘Refreezing Polar Regions’ Would Reverse Global Warming”
One popular geoengineering strategy proposed for countering imaginary global warming/climate change is increasing the earth’s albedo.
This increase is accomplished by various physical methods, e.g. injecting reflective aerosols into the atmosphere, spraying water vapor into the air to enhance marine cloud brightening, spreading shiny glass spheres around the poles with the goal of more reflection thereby reducing the net amount of solar energy absorbed by the atmosphere and surface and cooling the earth.
More albedo and the earth cools.
Less albedo and the earth warms.
No atmosphere means no clouds, ice, snow, vegetation, oceans and near zero albedo.
Zero albedo and the earth bakes in that 250 F solar wind.
These geoengineering plans expose the error and delusion of greenhouse theory which says the atmosphere warms the earth and with no atmosphere the earth becomes a -430 F frozen ball of ice.
A failure of greenhouse theory means no CO2 warming and no man caused climate change.
And the entire alarmist cabal of GHG mafia, EcoNazi youth, faux experts, clueless academics, hack reporters and talking air heads are instantly unemployed and will have to go find something useful to do.
