For more than forty years, the fragility of our environment has been one of the most pressing issues not only in the United States, but also the world. Humans, in an extremely short period of time, have irrevocably changed the climate of the earth through overpopulation, fossil fuel consumption, and pollution. Despite a general understanding of the dangers we face as we move forward, offenders are slow to act. Though renewable energy sources are abundant and plentiful, our legislators are reluctant to implement their widespread use. Instead of stopping the cause before it can do more damage, more and more attention is paid on how to fix the damage that has been done – and oftentimes through using very unorthodox methods.
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes guest Dane Wigington, lead researcher for GeoEngineeringWatch.org , and former employee of the Bechtel Power Corporation, who was compelled to act when when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to the ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from jet aircraft spraying in the skies above his forest home next to Lake Shasta in northern California.
Geoengineering, which has also been called climate engineering and climate intervention, is the the deliberate and large-scale intervention using artificial modification of Earth’s climate systems with the aim of limiting adverse climate change. There are two primary ideologies for this, Solar Radiation Management (SRM) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR).
Solar radiation management techniques would seek to reduce the sunlight absorbed (ultra-violet, near infra-red and visible) on Earth. This would be achieved by deflecting sunlight away from the Earth, or by increasing the reflectivity of the atmosphere or the Earth’s surface. There are a number of methods of achieving this, including surface-based (using pale-colored roofing materials, attempting to change the oceans’ brightness, or growing highly reflective crops), troposphere-based (marine cloud brightening, which would spray fine sea water to whiten clouds and thus increase cloud reflectivity), upper atmosphere-based (which seeks to create reflective aerosols), and space-based (space sunshade—obstructing solar radiation with space-based mirrors, dust, etc.)
Carbon dioxide removal projects seek to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Proposed methods include those that directly remove such gases from the atmosphere, as well as indirect methods that seek to promote natural processes that draw down and sequester CO2 (e.g. tree planting). Techniques in this category include creating biochar (which can be mixed with soil to create terra preta), bio-energy with carbon capture and storage to sequester carbon (and simultaneously provide energy), carbon air capture (to remove carbon dioxide from ambient air) afforestation, reforestation and forest restoration to absorb carbon dioxide, and ocean fertilization including iron fertilization of the oceans.
Despite the noble ideas behind these methods, there are a number of dangers, much stemming from the lack of checks and balances on these relatively new technologies. How can we as citizens know what is being sprayed (for instance) and how much of it? What are the effects on our health, both in the long term and the short?
