A solution for Global Warming.

Post by genlock » Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:39 pm

It has been proposed that a dust cloud made of Moon or asteroid dust could be created around the Earth to block solar radiation

In 2012 scientists at the University of Strathclyde suggested capturing an asteroid and dragging it into the Langrange Point – halfway between the Earth and the Moon – where it would create a stream of dust surrounding the Earth and blocking out the Sun.

They suggested using 1036 Ganymed which would create a cloud of around 2,600km wide.

However the scientists admitted that a miscalculation could cause 1036 Ganymed to hit the Earth, which would end human civilization and most of life on the planet.

They also accepted that they have no idea if a dust cloud would have the desired effect. If it blocked out too much sunlight it could tip Earth back into a new ice age.

They sound like your typical "climate change" scientists.
