Geoengineering to reduce climate change could adversely affect rainfall, scientists report
by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer
(NaturalNews) Some scientists are globalist thinkers, and they believe that their knowledge puts them in charge of the entire world, including the planet's temperature and the amount of gases that should be in the atmosphere. They think, at any given moment, that they have the right to spray the skies with bouts of sulfate aerosols to reflect sunlight back into outer space.
In an attempt to reduce greenhouse gases, and reflect the sun's light, these globalists utilize geoengineering to control the skies. Geoengineering, or the worldwide manipulation of atmospheric gases, sunlight, rainfall and temperature, has been introduced and implemented as a means to control climate and weather. These "heroic" efforts to save the planet from rising temperatures are far from intelligent. Studies now reveal that many unintended consequences come from geoengineering, including mini-droughts, reduced monsoonal rainfall across several continents and depleted ozone levels.
Important findings from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), show how geoengineering efforts negatively affect rainfall around the world.
Geoengineering drastically reducing rainfall around the worldThe NCAR findings show that global warming is indeed causing a massive increase in greenhouse gases and that these atmospheric conditions are spurring 7 percent average increases in precipitation when compared to preindustrial conditions. The increased precipitation has a lot to do with greater evaporation, as more moisture is pumped into the atmosphere as a result of more heat being trapped near the surface.
But what the researchers found out was that geoengineering doesn't help climate change, but instead worsens climate change in other ways. In trying to resolve the problem through "geoengineering," researchers from the NCAR found that monsoonal rains in North America, East Asia and other regions drop by 5-7 percent when compared to preindustrial conditions. This is leading to an average global precipitation reduction of about 4.5 percent!
Simone Tilmes, lead author of the study, reports, "Geoengineering the planet doesn't cure the problem. Even if one of these techniques could keep global temperatures approximately balanced, precipitation would not return to preindustrial conditions."
Using 12 of the world's leading climate models to simulate global precipitation patterns, Simone's team focused on specific geoengineering efforts currently used in the skies, involving the large scale injection of sulfate aerosols into the stratosphere to control carbon dioxide levels. Many people now recognize this tactic as "chemtrails in the sky."
Co-author John Fasullo says, "It's very much a pick-your-poison type of problem. If you don't like warming, you can reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the surface and cool the climate. But if you do that, large reductions in rainfall are unavoidable. There's no win-win option here."
Ever since the Industrial Revolution, civilization has increased its productivity and also increased global emissions. With the average global surface temperature increasing .8 degrees Celsius, scientists have grown concerned over the issue of global warming. Carbon dioxide emissions have increased from 280 ppm to 380 ppm, but this reality does not give globalist thinkers the power to inject the skies with experimental aerosols that can make the environment and people sicker.
How geoengineering makes the atmosphere drierAerosols in the atmosphere reflect sunlight away from Earth. This can be seen naturally during the powerful volcanic eruptions of Mount Pinatubo and El Chicon. For several years after the eruptions, regional surface temperatures were reduced. Scientists look to volcanic models to simulate temperature reductions though means of injecting sulfate aerosols into the stratosphere.
The unintended consequences of this man-made atmospheric manipulation include ozone depletion, acid rain stimulation and drastically reduced rainfall levels that lead to mini-droughts.
Geoengineering makes the atmosphere drier by shading the earth and lessening the amount of water vapor that is pumped into the atmosphere through evaporation. As less solar heat reaches the surface, the power of evaporation is reduced and the rain cycle is obstructed.
The land can also become drier when plants begin reacting to changes by partially closing their stomata. When this happens, more carbon dioxide is allowed in, and less oxygen and water is let out, lowering the amount of water to be evaporated.
Tilmes says, "More research could show both the positive and negative consequences for society of such changes in the environment. What we do know is that our climate system is very complex, that human activity is making Earth warmer, and that any technological fix we might try to shade the planet could have unforeseen consequences."
