(LifeSiteNews) — The White House has published a report that suggests blocking sunlight from entering the Earth’s atmosphere to fight climate change. 

The report describes the concept of using “solar radiation modification” (SRM) to “cool[s] the climate by reflecting a greater amount of incoming solar (shortwave) radiation back into space.” 

One method of SRM is stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI), where reflective sulfate aerosol particles are released into the stratosphere to reflect sunlight from the Earth. 

The White House report likens SAI to volcanic eruptions “which are known to cool the Earth.”  

The document describes the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 which “cooled the Earth by 0.7°C and led to a ‘year without summer’ (1816), altered precipitation patterns, disrupted monsoons, and led to flooding that provoked crop failure, famine, and the outbreak of disease.” 

Furthermore, computer simulations of SRM “show that the chemistry of the stratosphere may change, and atmospheric circulations may intensify in ways that may lead to seasonal-scale impacts such as more frequent extreme drought or precipitation events,” according to the report. 

Despite recognizing these possible dire consequences of geoengineering, the report still suggests that SRM could be used to “help address the risks of climate change, including potential tipping points and overshoot scenarios. 

The document states that “[c]limate change is already having profound effects on the physical and natural world, and on human well-being, and these effects will only grow as greenhouse gas concentrations increase and warming continues.” 

To prevent the alleged catastrophic outcomes that “climate change” may lead to, a so-called “risk vs. risk” analysis needs to be conducted, comparing the purported risks of not addressing climate change and using geoengineering to cool the earth. 

While using SAI and other geoengineering techniques could have serious negative consequences, even according to proponents of the idea, the danger from climate change has been significantly overestimated. 

Dire climate predictions made by scientists, politicians, and climate activists have continuously been wrong in the past. For instance, the date for when the Arctic Ocean will allegedly be ice-free has been moved back several times in recent decades.

In a press release published on June 30, the White House stated that the report on SRM “does not signify any change in policy or activity by the Biden-Harris Administration, which remains focused on reducing emissions, increasing resilience, advancing environmental justice, and achieving true energy security.” 

Instead, the “[r]elease of this report fulfills a Congressional mandate, and there are no plans underway to establish a comprehensive research program focused on solar radiation modification,” according to the White House. 

Experts called for a ban on geoengineering 

In January 2022, a group of esteemed scholars and scientists published an open letter calling for “an International Non-Use Agreement on Solar Geoengineering,” due to the risk of the method. 

“[T]here are serious concerns about ‘locking in’ solar geoengineering as an infrastructure and policy option … as well as about militarization and security,” the letter states. 

“Solar geoengineering is not necessary,” the group of experts wrote. “Neither is it desirable, ethical, or politically governable in the current context. With the normalization of solar geoengineering research moving on with rapid speed, a strong political message to block these technologies is needed. And this message must come soon.” 

Solar geoengineering has been suggested before 

This new White House report is not the first instance of solar geoengineering being discussed publicly. One of the most well-known proponents of Solar Geoengineering with the alleged goal to combat climate change has been the globalist billionaire Bill Gates. 

A 2021 report called “Reflecting Sunlight,” by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, called for “a strategic investment in research” to better understand solar geoengineering and its possible benefits and risks. 

The globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) has also promoted the idea of blocking sunlight to fight “global warming.” 

“By reflecting the sun’s heat away from earth, scientists say cutting out just 1.8% of the sun’s rays would fully reverse global warming,” a video uploaded by the WEF in 2022 claimed, adding that it may still be “several years before space bubbles might be put to use, making the task of decarbonizing life on Earth no less urgent.”
