The people worried about slightly warmer temperatures have some shocking ‘solutions’. At this week’s meetings in Paris discussing how this kamikaze destruction of the climate has come up with some bizarre solutions such as this: flood the atmosphere with extremely toxic for all plants and all animals…sulfur dioxide!!! My jaw hit the floor. This lunatic solution is real, our rulers are considering such things. This proves the global warming gang are actually killers seeking to destroy our planet.
Eight ideas to deal with climate change and save the planet | Newsday has this harridan offering the SO2 solution: Joyce Penner is a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Michigan and a member of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
As the world struggles to address global warming, some propose geoengineering– intentionally altering the planet’s atmosphere — as a way to lower temperatures. The most studied technique would work by adding sulfate particles to the stratosphere, which is similar to what happens as a result of large volcanic eruptions. Those particles reflect solar radiation, preventing some of the sun’s rays from warming the Earth.
While this type of solution sounds promising, it must never be considered in isolation. Without agreements in place to significantly decrease carbon dioxide emissions, we would have to continue pumping more and more sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere, perhaps for millennia. We don’t know the consequences of such large and prolonged tampering.
This monster is a professor of atmospheric sciences. She is a FRAUD. How dare she offer this insane, deadly solution? She obviously knows nothing real about atmospheres or basic chemistry. I am really, really, REALLY pissed off by her End of Times solution. She shouldn’t be just fired, she should be locked in a room filled with SO2.
So far, that stuff is listed as an Air pollutant: Sulfur dioxide (SO2) – Minnesota Pollution Control …What is the damage caused by sulphur dioxide (SO2) to human beings and the environment? – Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) – Chile
The SO2 is hygroscopic, when it is in the atmosphere it reacts with humidity and forms sulphuric and sulphurous aerosol acid that is later part of the so-called acid rain. The intensity in the formation of aerosols and the permanence of them in the atmosphere depend on the meteorological conditions and the quantity of catalytic impurities (substances that accelerate the processes) present in the air. But in general, the average time of permanence in the atmosphere is around 3-5 days, so it can be transported to greater distances.
Sulphur dioxide is also associated with asthma, chronic bronchitis, morbidity and mortality increase in old people and infants.
Sulphur is a highly noxious venom for people’s health, although we can be more resistant than other creatures that live with us. For example, the level of 0,3 µg per cubic metre of air implies a potential risk for human health, but for trees, 0,2 µg is extremely dangerous. Because of that, sulphur oxides (SOx) and sulphuric acid (H2SO4) are related with the damage and destruction of vegetation, soil deterioration, construction material and watercourses.
Joyce Penner may be the absolute worse of the global hysterics running around Paris this week, she is definitely a terrorist who is planning to kill billions of people, animals and even plants, worse than Hitler, but there are others not so ambitious killers such as Howard Herzog in the article about how to fix it so we have another Ice Age:
The most direct way to curb emissions of carbon dioxide, if not necessarily the simplest or least expensive, is to catch it before it enters the atmosphere. That process, called carbon capture and storage, traps the carbon produced by combustion of fossil fuels and then stores it, often in deep geologic formations. The primary targets for CCS are large, stationary sources, chiefly coal and natural gas-fired power plants, as well as industrial facilities including refineries, cement plants and petrochemical facilities.
CCS has three inherent advantages over other approaches. It works with our fossil fuel infrastructure and can avoid stranding hundreds of trillion of dollars of fossil fuel assets. It makes it possible to keep using fossil fuels, which produce constantly dispatchable power, as opposed to intermittent power from solar and wind. Finally, when the source of power is trees or crops, which pull carbon from the air, burning it at a facility that uses CCS can create negative net emissions.
How will we get anything to grow if we steal all the CO2 and plants can’t get any of it. When we set in motion systems that do stuff like sucking down automatically carbon and oxygen, this will run riot as all human systems run riot when set into motion.
