Quote:Floating 12 miles above our heads, this Wembley Stadium-sized helium balloon tethered to a ship may one day help save the planet from global warming.

Quote:Produced by scientists at Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol and Edinburgh Universities, the 660ft-long balloons would be positioned far out to sea if the plan is approved.
They say just ten balloons – pouring ten million tons of material into the stratosphere every year – could achieve a 2c drop in global temperature in two years.

I have to assume these academics have noticed the easy and generous funding for "climate change" projects and are simply cashing in. They do admit at the end of the article that it might not be a good idea.
Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth. - Alan Caruba

It appears that global cooling is going to increase in intensity.

More on this later.
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

The Press release was actually June 14,2011.But it is still newsworthy and ominous.

Major Drop in Solar Activity Predicted: Little Ice Age, part II?

Jo Nova

September 15,2011

EXCERPT:

Ominously, the embryonic markers of solar cycle 25 three years late and are nowhere to be seen. Scientists are asking if this could be the start of another Maunder-type Minimum. (The bummer with that, being that during those 70 quiet years the world slipped into the Little Ice Age; animals froze in barns, people starved, disease raged… see The brutal cold of the Maunder Minimum and the Great Irish Frost for some light entertainment.)

If it were going to happen, we ought to start preparing now, right? You know, take precautions, “buy insurance”, figure out if CO2 actually does any useful warming (and if so, pump more of it into our atmosphere). You know it makes sense…

Seriously, if the cold is coming, we really ought to pay attention. — Jo

I wonder if the LIA was the beginning of the cool down right into the next 90,000 years of cold and ice?
