    Is mostly false like mostly pregnant?

    From your own sources.

    What's True
    Since 2007, Bill Gates has funded research initiatives that, in part, provide grants for experiments related to solar radiation management — a form of geoengineering controversially proposed as a last-ditch solution to anthropogenic global warming. A Harvard experiment named is supported in part by these initiatives.


    And here's what SCoPeX is all about. So yah, I think the article was serious and it's a little more in depth than what Snopes would have you believe in their attempt to discredit this and other articles on the subject.
    First sun-dimming experiment will test a way to cool Earth

    Researchers plan to spray sunlight-reflecting particles into the stratosphere, an approach that could ultimately be used to quickly lower the planet’s temperature.

    The idea is simple: spray a bunch of particles into the stratosphere, and they will cool the planet by reflecting some of the Sun’s rays back into space. Scientists have already witnessed the principle in action. When Mount Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it injected an estimated 20 million tonnes of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere — the atmospheric layer that stretches from about 10 to 50 kilometres above Earth's surface. The eruption created a haze of sulfate particles that cooled the planet by around 0.5?°C. For about 18 months, Earth’s average temperature returned to what it was before the arrival of the steam engine.

    BTW I consider Snopes to be one of the most unreliable and biased fact finding sites out there.

    But just in case you disagree, this should put your mind at ease since they've cleared themselves of any bias. ROTFL

    Not my source, it was the second Google result. it's really not difficult to check these things to avoid embarrassing yourself.

    Did you check that link? Go ahead, we'll wait.

    I don't disagree that Snopes has issues. But it also does some pretty good research, and shouldn't be dismissed out of hand.

    I've never fallen for the "Bill Gates will pay you a billion dollars to forward this email" kind of virus, because I know the basics of email. Just like I have read many papers on ways to combat global warming.

    And dimming the Earth is considered the last resort. Mainly because the repercussions cannot be undone.

    I also know that Bill Gates has sunk a lot of money into projects to further technology in carbon sequestration and travelling wave reactors.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/06/21/carbon- ... anies.html

    So the headline "Bill Gates backs untested and very risky global dimming experiment1" set off the same bullshit detector as 'forward this email and win a trillion dollars' does.

    The question is; with all the failures you've been having lately - why doesn't it set off your bullshit detector?
  • Freakinoldguy: With no personal disrespect intended, IMO your position of moderator is being compromised by your unrelenting political bias and hate of the Conservative point of views. A fact which might, when combined with other factors have led to the recent demise of alot of the Conservative leaning members of this forum.

    Nobody, not even Conservatives like to walk into an echo chamber. And for the record I have no problem discussing a point of view but I do take exception to every post I and others you don't agree with make being denigrated because you personally don't like or trust the source. I was once told by a left wing member on here that the world wasn't black and white. Well this forum is starting to prove that fact wrong.

    But, back to the topic at hand. You seem to take umbrage with the fact that by your own admission Bill Gates is knowingly funding SCoPeX and no I don't care when this technology started or who's done it before because question becomes. "Is SCoPeX studying ways to block the sun and does Bill Gates know and understand what they're doing"? My guess is the answer is yes which makes him a part of the plan to block the sun which is what the original post was about but I will grant that the headline was a bit of hyperbole.

    As for my bullshit detector not going off well it might be because it's been overwhelmed by the mistruths that have been posted on here for the past decade or so and no, they weren't all right wing posts. ROTFL
