    No doubt if Bill’s wife got elected this would be implemented.

    Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.

    The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.

    The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

    I remember they were talking about spreading black carbon over the arctic to stave off the ice age in the 70.s.

    Two things come to mind.

    One is the category of conspiracy theories pertaining to “chemtrails”. There's really not much to be said about that, here.

    The other is the “nuclear winter” theory of a few decades ago. The theory was that even a minor exchange of nuclear weapons might put enough crap into the atmosphere to block enough sunlight, to cause a catastrophic global cooling of the climate. The article cited in the OP echoes a thought that I've had a few times, that if one assumes that the “global warming” hoax is true, and if one also assumes that the “nuclear winter” theory is true, that perhaps a mild version of the latter effect could be created in order to mitigate the former effect.

    Be much simpler just nuking all those nations that are a pain in the ass and enjoying the nuclear winter. Twofer.
