Microsoft founder Bill Gates funds bizarre Harvard University project testing sun-dimming technology to combat global warming quietly moving forward in Sweden.
This was reported last month by Reuters: The project "plans to test out a controversial theory that global warming can be stopped by spraying particles into the atmosphere that would reflect the sun’s rays."
Western Journal's Douglas Golden revealed that the project is being funded by billionaire globalist Bill Gates. "While you may have been paying attention to [Gates'] efforts on vaccination and lockdowns, you may not have noticed that one of Gates' most controversial causes just got a go-ahead: A project that would help block out the sun," wrote Golden.
"[Gates is] known for wanting to save us from ourselves," Golden said, adding "Now, apparently, he wants to save us from the sun."
"This sounds a bit like the plot to “Highlander 2: The Quickening,” but it’s nothing near that science fiction-y," said Golden, pointing out that one of the biggest problems with the plan is "that we don't know what the unintended consequences might be."
Harvard University scientists intend to launch a test balloon that would fly over 1,000 lbs of scientific equipment 12 miles above Sweden by this year.
Reuters notes that the plan are receiving pushback from environmentalists who are opposed to solar geoengineering.
The Swedish Space Corporation agreed this week to help Harvard researchers launch the balloon near the Arctic town of Kiruna next June, according to Reuters.
David Keith is a professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School as well as a professor of applied physics at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
He says "There are very many real concerns" about the risks of climate change and solar geoengineering and that "Understanding them requires a range of activities including experiments."
These experiments, which scientists aim to be underway by autumn of 2021, will not release any particles into the atmosphere. But future experiments may release "up to 2 kg of non-toxic calcium carbonate dust" into the atmosphere, according to Keith.
Reuters says opponents see the Swedish balloon as a step on a slippery slope towards engineering the climate with an artificial sunshade - something with potentially large and hard-to-predict risks, such as shifts in global rain patterns.
Even environmentalists, a normal ally to globalists and their agenda, cannot endorse the Gates-Harvard project.
"There is no merit in this test except to enable the next step. You can't test the trigger of a bomb and say ‘This can't possibly do any harm'," said Niclas Hällström, director of the Swedish green think-tank WhatNext?, reports Reuters.
Golden points out that "while Hällström is worried about some of the same things that other people are — the potential to change rain patterns or crop yields — he’s also concerned that people aren’t concerned enough about the solution he wants, which is a transition to a zero-carbon society."
