South African scientists plan to send small particles into the atmosphere to reduce sunlight.
The threat that is ignored these days, when the coronavirus epidemic is spoken out, is global warming. Experts expect water demand to increase by 55 percent by 2050. According to the Euroweeklynews Independent report, South African scientists acting against this possibility are working on a very interesting project.
According to the same report, scientists at the University of Cape Town plan to send small particles into the atmosphere to reduce sunlight. The plan aims to release large quantities of sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere above Cape Town, thereby permanently darkening the Sun and protecting water resources.
The scheme was published in the academic journal Environmental Research Letters. However, few scientists point out that this project will not be a solution.
Many scientists are opposed to the idea of pumping gas into the atmosphere to reduce the effects of global warming.
Experts defending this idea describe the plan as “a dangerous intervention that could damage the climate system”.
