What if We Blotted Out the Sun to Fight Global Warming?

What if We Blotted Out the Sun to Fight Global Warming? thumbnail

We like to think we cover the Big Stories around here, so today’s newsletter is leading with the one question on everyone’s mind: What is Tom Brady going to do in retirement? What can be done to stop or slow climate change?

One of the great hopes is something called solar geoengineering, notes Clara Ferreira Marques, which is essentially an attempt to figure out a way to cool the planet by deflecting some of the sun’s rays before they reach us humans. The science isn’t yet there, but a group of scientists argue it should be banned now — and they are not wrong that it is a risky and last-resort proposition. Clara argues it’s “terrifying and terrible in the way that chemotherapy is: We don’t want it, but can we deny ourselves the possibility?” Like they say, read the whole thing.

Despite the near-universal agreement over the need to reduce global emissions, Big Oil is likely to get richer before it gets poorer. Today, notes Liam Denning, Exxon “announced its best financial results in many years.” Part of the reason for the surprisingly rosy short-term outlook for fossil fuels, notes David Fickling, is (spoiler alert) China. Yes, it is using more renewables, he says, but it is also using more energy — a lot more. How will it meet demand? “Fossil fuels, overwhelmingly coal, will fill the gap,” David says.

So maybe we’ll need to keep solar engineering in our back pocket. It’s not ideal, but it’s a more hopeful vision of the future than the one Clara opens her column with (admittedly, that one’s from a dystopian novel). The more realistic view may come from … the slide decks of Big Oil. Both Exxon and Chevron, Liam notes, “now feature extended discussions of lower carbon businesses.”

    They get it now. They are no real humans left on earth. All hybrid and being from other dimensions. Earth is populated with feminine beings without courage. Yes you can abuse them and show them police officer dress Nazi style. Yes, earth is not worth saving.

    The woke people hate instability and chaos. They are too stupid to survive on their own. They always look for some kind of paternal figure head, in this case the government. Their emotional state depend on the stability of the father figure, in this case the government.

    If the government look competent they are reassured emotionally. If the government look incompetent they became emotionally stress as they feel abandoned by the father figure. They are losers and nothing can be achieved with such people.

    The woke hates what is happening in Ottawa with the trucker convoy. They like consensus because this is how the determine if their decision was right. If everyone took the vaccines it mean for them they took the right decision.

    If people disagree, they get stuck and cannot make a decision on their own ,they are too stupid and cannot analyze what is happening around them. So they become anxious until a consensus and social peace is reach.

    You 0:40 to 0:42 the pale energy that is leaving the vertical light. I see something similar but it is red and stay 1 inchy away from the LED display of my TM1638. If I get close to the TI1638 it disappeared and reappear when I move away. You get the idea.

    It looks like more 1:43. It stay close to the LED display. It never goes far away from the source of light.

    I see two kind of holographic energy sources now instead of one. One is at the top of my LED display (TM1638) and one seems to come from the bottom of the display, all about 1 inch away from the display. The energy sources look pales made of some kind of dots.
    I see them only during the night.

    One guy told me 5 year ago, he was one of them, you look health and you glow. I think I am glowing ever more now, I look like a light source that is glowing from the inside of my body trough my skin. Imagine how they see me now, the enemies.

    My forearms are becoming whiter and losing their brown tan.

    I also see the holographic energy source when I look at the items in the window startup menu of my laptop. I think the holographic energy source is behind the words written in the startup menu not in front as I previously stated. I downloaded a movie two years ago on my laptop. It is called Machete Kills. Two years ago they had short necks and normal ears. Now they have long necks and wide ears.

    I think every organic beings has a energy structure attached to his organic body. I think they have access to the database coming with the energy struct. I thinks they have unauthorized access to the internal database coming with the energy structure of humans. We need to lock the database inside the energy structure of humans.

  16. SomeOfMymusing on Thu, 3rd Feb 2022 7:43 pm 

    I think this is the database they modified to have access to it. This database should be locked.

    Masking out the sun is such a *STUPID* idea – it is beyond words:
    1. Photosynthesis will be curtailed which will lead to die offs of plant life and impact food security in a big way.
    2. Deflecting the sun’s rays away from the earth’s surface and hence away from the very SOLAR PANELS that are supposed to be saving us…

    Some of the holographic energy sources I see on my red LED display and my computer screen, look a bit like what we see with a 3D holographic sticker.

    It look more like something like this.

    Sometimes I see two one on top that is really pale and weak and one at bottom that is darker. I move forward the display they both merge with the number of the LED display.

    Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

    Please see above. Things have improved slightly. I now have as a trial monthly injections of Emgality and that seems to help with migraine. I have a special prescription for reading glasses so I can read again. That is my primary activity these days. My biggest problem is that I have no energy, and walking is once again a challenge as I wobble like a drunk. My balance is gone. Without my wonderful husband I would be in Assisted Living.

    Lawyers for Wells Fargo bank claimed on Wednesday that the 57-year-old chat show host is ‘incapacitated’ and ‘the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.’ Williams is fighting to regain control of her bank account, which was taken from her in mid January after her financial adviser alleged that she was not of ‘sound mind’. Williams’s team have denied that she is impaired, and brushed off rumors that she is suffering from dementia, and insist that she should be given control of her own finances. This week a ‘permanent guest host’ of her show was named – Williams has been absent since July 2021. It is unclear when, or if, she will return.
