Could 'Re-Engineering' Earth Help Ease the Hurricane Threat?
As hurricanes continue to increase in frequency and intensity, a $10-billion-a-year project proposes injecting sulphate into the atmosphere to cool down the Earth and reduce the number of hurricanes by 50% for a staggering 50 years.
In an interview with Popular Mechanics, outlining how the plan works, Moore asserts, “We’re basically mimicking a volcano and saying we’re going to put 5 billion tons of sulphates a year into the atmosphere 20 kilometers high, and we’ll do that for 50 years.”
Now what could possibly go wrong with that.....
