Scientist Unveils Plan to CATCH an Asteroid to Block Out the Sun to Fight Climate Change

Scientists are reportedly looking to catch an asteroid and tether it to block out the sun in order to fight climate change.

If given the go-ahead, the bizarre plan would see a massive umbrella placed on the trapped rock to shield Earth from the sun.

An astronomer from the University of Hawaiʻi, István Szapudi, said the concept was merely an enormous ‘solar shield.’

The shield, made from graphene, would be placed on the asteroid and block out energy from the sun and cool down the Earth, the scientist claims.

The idea was outlined in a paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The scientist claims the space shield would cool down Earth but not plunge us into the next ice age.

“In Hawaiʻi, many use an umbrella to block the sunlight as they walk about during the day,” Szapudi said.

“I was thinking, could we do the same for Earth and thereby mitigate the impending catastrophe of climate change?”

As The Daily Mail reports:

The ‘solar shield’ concept has been proposed before, notably in a recent study that suggested using moon dust as the sunlight blocker.

Other studies have described using a physical man-made shield that acts as an umbrella – much like Szapudi’s idea.

But according to the academic, no one has yet addressed how such an object could be feasibly launched into space and stay in position once it gets there.

Even if a rocket were able to launch the multi-billion-ton solar shield, it could potentially be blown out of position by powerful solar radiation.

And the lighter the solar shield is to get it up into space, the greater the likelihood of it getting blown about once there.

He suggests stationing the contraption at the ‘L1’ Lagrange point – a position in space between Earth and the sun where objects sent there tend to stay put.

But even then, solar radiation could blow away a light sun-shield.

Szapudi, therefore, suggests using an asteroid as a counterweight, which would be attached via a tether to the solar shield.

Importantly, the asteroid counterweight would give the contraption sufficient weight to stop it from blowing away.

But it would also reduce the total mass launched from Earth, meaning a launch of the device would be far more feasible.

According to Szapudi, the weight of the shield and counterweight combined would be approximately 3.5 million tons, about 100 times lighter than previous estimates for an untethered shield.

As The Daily Fetched reported last month, the White House announced similar solar radiation modification (SRM) support to fight “climate change.”

Earlier this year, reports revealed Gates supported the geoengineering technology to spread particles in the atmosphere to block sunlight from reaching the Earth.

Meanwhile, billionaire leftists George Soros also supported the solar geoengineering projects to dim the sun and deflect more sunlight from the Earth, Fortune reported.

Now the Biden White House voiced support for the technology, saying, “SRM offers the possibility of cooling the planet significantly on a timescale of a few years.”

“Such cooling would tend to reverse many of the negative consequences of climate change, albeit with ramifications which are now poorly understood,” the White House report said.

“Interest in SRM is heightened as greenhouse gases continue to accumulate in the atmosphere and as science tells us more about the risks associated with exceeding global temperature targets,” the report said.

Those idiots put out stupid nonsense like this not because they truely believe in it but to glamourize their field of work/research and attract funds. Idiot politicians and media then use it for extortion.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
