Global Warming: The Quick Fix Is In

Abstract:
What goes up, however, still (usually) comes down. Be it silver iodide, sulfur, or salt spray, the ton of particles that would need to be regularly blasted into the stratosphere will find their way back to earth again. All the issues related to environmental health and safety associated with particulate pollution, including novel manufactured nanoparticles, remain relevant for these intentional polluting schemes. Climate change experts insist that we should distinguish between unintended pollution and climate modification schemes that pump particulate matter into the air we breathe. But our lungs won't know the difference.15 According to the World Health Organization, more than 4.5 million people die each year from industrial and vehicle emissions and from burning fuels indoors. Geoengineering the stratosphere makes it easier for industry to continue atmospheric pollution but compounds the potential problem by intentionally contributing massively to particle pollution.
