Gallery: Bill Gates Endorses Large Scale Geo-Engineering Projects


Geo-engineering (the deliberate large-scale manipulation of the environment to combat anthropogenic changes in atmospheric chemistry) has long been touted as a way to counteract the catastrophic effects of global warming, but has been considered dangerous by some as it interferes with the world’s delicate ecosystems. However the controversial practice has now received a boost from some of the wealthiest men in the world – including Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The group of billionaires has been funding a small team of leading climate scientists and are lobbying governments and international bodies to back geo-engineering experiments to avoid catastrophic climate change.

    At least with a seawater sprayer, you can turn it off. Not like sulphur dioxide particles in the stratosphere.

    These guys need a good inventing consultant these ideas are not quite investment grade

    Bill Gates and his cabal of scientists does not have my consent to conduct the outlandish proposed projects A and B … these individuals have created synthetic chemical solutions in geo-engineered medicine-vaccines-GMO food seeds and crops-agra-cultured pesticides that have poisoned the soil and watersheds-watertables … have not been able to complete eradicating his malaria project let alone his ambitions to garner the interneting cloud for cyber-communication issues without jumping off into another project that ravage the natural balance of earths’ insect species nor atmospheric weather-climatic understanding. Do we need these impulsive characters’ to mess even moreso with issues the source not fully understood – playing God with money and incoherent-scattered knowledge over our only resources – the air and earth we have as our only haven?

    Geo engineering does not bring a solution

    The acidification of the sea will go one, and might even get worse when large quantities of SO2 will rain out ?

    Bill Gates has been investing in Chem-spraying our atmosphere as well already… I do not support Geo-engineering of Planet Earth. I do not support Geo-engineering of the foods we eat either. This is actually killing our Planet and creating health issues that harm millions of humans! This technology scares me! It MUST stop!

    So typical for guys who have a lot of money to think up a solution that would quick-fix all problems. Why would you want to change your way of life and be more responsible if you can use this bandaid instead. Sooo sad & stupid, but nature will outclever these ‘smart’ guys!
