The White House, through the U.S. Office of Science and Technology, has released an outline of how a future sun-blocking geoengineering program might be designed.
The report examines how best to study the risks, benefits, and feasibility of “solar radiation modification”.
The White House report can be interpreted as the Biden administration opening up to the possibility of blocking sunlight – something that is already on the table with parts of the alarmist circle of the climate movement. The globalist think tank World Economic Forum is among those who have floated the idea in the past.
The motive behind the latest US research report, highlighted by Politico magazine, is, as always, climate policy.
According to the report, two main options are being studied. Firstly, so-called “aerosol injection” (i.e. shooting reflective particles into the atmosphere) and secondly, lighter sea clouds (producing whiter clouds).
While acknowledging that the risks of manipulating the Earth’s atmosphere are likely to be high, the report emphasizes the importance of being able to detect when and where other actors may be experimenting with the technology.
The group behind the report emphasizes that its work should not be seen as an endorsement of the technology as such, but only as a mandate from Congress as part of an appropriation for research on “solar and other rapid climate interventions”.
The White House said in a statement accompanying the report that “there are no plans underway to establish a comprehensive research program focused on solar radiation modification“.
