Harvard To Experiment With Weather Changing Aerosols Next Year
April 12th, 2017 | Poletical News
Engineers at Harvard plan to experiment with weather changing aerosols to combat climate change. In the first approved experiment of its kind, scientists and researchers plan to use aerosols to reflect solar rays away from Earth in an attempt to reduce temperatures in target locations.
The experiment is estimated to cost $20M and will include aerosols that range from simple water vapours to calcium carbonate. It is being called the largest geoengineering experiment ever, and it could be used in future attempts to curb "global warming". The method of spraying such aerosols into the Earth's atmosphere is called "stratospheric injection".
The experiments are likely to begin in mid-2018.
