Scientists Want To Dim Sunlight To Fight Climate Change
Climate Change is mankind’s biggest challenge and it has already done irreparable damage to our planet.
To fight climate change, scientists are seeing "solar geoengineering” as the last resort to save humanity.
Solar Geoengineering involves shooting particles into the stratosphere that will help reduce the heat coming from the Sun.
While the idea of interfering with Earth’s ecosystem has been criticized by many, a lot of scientists are still considering the possibility.
Spraying sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere could decrease temperatures on Earth, similar to enormous volcanic eruptions.
Many experts believe these particles could provide shade and lower Earth’s temperature.
But it could have side effects like extreme weather, such as flooding, in unexpected locations across the globe.
