We need your help to stop an experiment designed to test the hardware for geoengineering the skies by sending chemicals into the stratosphere!
A consortium of universities in the UK are planning to test a kilometer-long hose that will be engineered to inject particles into the stratosphere as a geoengineering technology — in order to reflect sunlight back to space and thereby artificially – theoretically — cool the planet. There must be no tests allowed of equipment designed to engineer the climate, especially while there is an international moratorium on these technologies. This test must be stopped because it is the first step towards the technological manipulation of the climate — a high risk, ill-considered way to “cool the planet” when we know that emissions reduction is the only solution.
This test is expected to take place at Sculthorpe airfield in the UK between October 6 and 23rd.
