BEGINNING TO PENETRATE BEYOND THE HYDRA-HEADED GLOBAL WARMING DELUSIONS. PART 4...

Introduction

The first three essays in this Hydra-Headed Meta-Delusion series explain massive delusions that affect the entire world and more particularly the USA. The first massive delusion is exposed as the world’s belief that through the Paris Accord it has addressed the most pressing and pervasive crisis humanity has yet faced, i.e., rapid and disastrous climate heating and runaway climate destabilization. The demonstration of the Tinkerbell-Effect points to the delusions that those who supposedly are working to stabilize climate suffer from. That group is not the political group administering the US political system that many are supposedly “resisting,” but the vast majority of the world who believe that we are moving toward climate stabilization. Evidence shows however that technological developments and current efforts to reduce or mitigate greenhouse gas pollutants are trivial compared to the dramatic and immediate reductions in fossil fuels required.

WE CAN BRIGHTEN CLOUDS TO REFLECT HEAT AND REDUCE GLOBAL WARMING. BUT SHOULD WE?

Fog blankets the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on Friday, Oct. 21, 2016. Some scientists want to pursue research into whether marine clouds could be seeded with salt water or other particles, to counter impacts of climate change. Known as “marine cloud brightening,” this technique aims to increase the ability of clouds to reflect solar energy away from the Earth’s surface, reducing temperatures caused by global warming. Eric Risberg AP

Ever-higher temperatures are melting the ice sheets faster than projected. Sea level is rising. International efforts to reduce greenhouse gases are taking longer than expected. It’s a nightmare scenario that could soon demand an emergency response. What to do???
