Wild Plan to Ease Climate Change: Space Bubbles
Concerned that efforts to staunch the flow of excess greenhouse gases bleeding into our atmosphere won't be enough to save us from a worsening crisis, MIT engineers have returned to a decades old vision to help ease the effects of climate change.
To buy time for weaning ourselves off our fossil fuel addiction, we could simply raise a parasol made of high-tech bubbles over the planet to create a bit of shade.
First proposed in the late 1980s, the suggestion of using a vast space-umbrella to block a tiny proportion of solar radiation isn't quite as far-fetched as it sounds. And to be fair, it's also a far less risky plan than other large scale geo-engineering projects intent on reflecting light from the surface back into space.
More lunacy here…
