Top African Official Warns Bill Gates and George Soros My Country Is NOT Your Climate Laboratory

A top Nigerian scientist has lashed out against Bill Gates and George Soros for using Africa as petri dish for their dangerous climate experiments.

As Forbes and other outlets noted, Gates has supported technology that spreads particles into the Earth’s atmosphere to block sunlight from reaching humans and the surface.

Earlier this year, left-wing billionaire Soros threw his support behind the project funded Bill Gates, which uses climate geoengineering to reflect sunlight back into space and away from the Earth.

But Chukwumerije Okereke, the Center for Climate Change and Development director at Alex Ekwueme Federal University in Nigeria, slammed Gates’ and Soros’ projects, accusing them of using Africa as a giant petri dish.

In an explosive Op-Ed in The New York Times titled “My Continent Is Not Your Giant Climate Laboratory,” Okereke wrote:

“As a climate expert, I consider these environmental manipulation techniques extremely risky. And as an African climate expert, I strongly object to the idea that Africa should be turned into a testing ground for their use.”

Okereke was fiercely pushing back against a report from the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative, which praised “solar radiation modification,” warning that “SRM, as well as other climate policy options, might encounter ‘non-rational’ public responses that could strongly influence decision-making.”

“It wasn’t the first time Westerners have tried to persuade Africans that solar engineering projects may be in our best interest. And it won’t be the last,” Okereke wrote.

Okereke described solar radiation management as “highly speculative.”

“Without using the whole earth as a laboratory, it’s impossible to know whether it would dim anything, let alone how it would affect ecosystems, people, and the global climate,” Okereke wrote.

“Other proposed techniques include covering deserts with plastic; genetically engineering plants to have brighter, more reflective leaves; creating or making clouds whiter; and deploying millions of mirrors in space.”

Okereke also warned that ideas on paper often disregard the impact on people, adding that “the technologies run the danger of upsetting local and regional weather patterns — intensifying drought or flooding, for example, or disrupting monsoon cycles. And the long-term impact on regional climate and seasons is still largely unknown.”

“Millions, perhaps billions, of people’s livelihoods could be undermined,” he said.

Okereke called for more investment in renewable energy instead of trying to re-engineer the weather with unproven science.

He wrote, “Advocates have tried to entice African governments by offering to fund research projects, claiming that more research will shed more light on the dangers and benefits of the technology.”

“But this just appears to be a way of trying to make Africa a test case for an unproven technology. Indeed more studies into this hypothetical solution look like steps toward development and a slippery slope to eventual deployment,” he added.

“Trying out solar geoengineering on somebody else’s turf, as was done in a failed experiment in Mexico, “echoed some of the worst aspects of colonialism,” he wrote, alluding to the climate project by Bill Gates and George Soros.

“African nations should strongly resist letting their territories be used for experimental exercises like this. The technologies are potentially dangerous, and a major distraction from the real change that we all know wealthier nations need to make if we have a hope of outrunning climate devastation,” he continued.

Meanwhile, a coalition of scientists wrote in an open letter calling for a moratorium on deploying solar geoengineering technology, arguing the risks and rewards would not be spread evenly.

“Science networks are dominated by a few industrialized countries, with less economically powerful countries having little or no direct control over them. Technocratic governance based on expert commissions cannot adjudicate complex global conflicts over values, risk allocation and differences in risk acceptance that arise within the context of solar geoengineering,” the letter said.

Chances are you can’t stop them.

Translation of what the african leader said: gates and soros did not give me enough cash.
