White House to Consider Bill Gates-Style Sun-Dimming Plan

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has announced a five-year research plan to study the possible ways of implementing “solar geoengineering” — reflecting some of the sun’s light in order to cool Earth.

The White House research plan would study different ways to limit Earth’s exposure to the sun as well as the effects that this could have on the environment and human health.

“The focus of this plan will be on research associated with climate intervention,” OTSP said.

The research plan was passed by Congress in its 2022 spending plan and signed by President Joe Biden in March, CNBC reported.

While there are many theories on how to implement solar geoengineering, the three main ideas are stratospheric aerosol injection, marine cloud brightening and cirrus cloud thinning.- READ MORE
