Congress Mandated Experts Design Plan To Block The Sun — And Kill Us All

Congress Mandated Experts Design Plan To Block The Sun — And Kill Us All



I trust you noticed the euphemism “solar radiation modification.” By which they meant blocking the sun. Which is not sane. It is insane. Which does not mean unexpected.

Our rulers and Experts also claim women can have penises, among other thought atrocities. Which means the only rational act is to distrust everything rulers and Experts say. Start with the belief that they are crazy, ignorant, or evil. Do not believe any ruler- or Expert-issued proposition unless you have checked it back to front, front to back, inside out, and every which way. And then still hold on to some doubt.

Good news first.

The report said Experts have ruled out mirrors in space and painting rooftops white. One can with ease envision idiot Experts in space floating about, trying to align mirrors just so, the occasional one breaking free into deep space. The occasional Expert, I mean. Fun. And you, dear reader, can see in your mind busloads of illegal aliens driving house to house and slathering on sloppy layers of white paint, which would drip down the sides in the first rain.

Now the bad news.

What they do recommend is “stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) and marine cloud brightening (MCB)”. The first might be called the Gates Plan. Which is to launch the cremated remains of people into space, the human dust blocking the sun’s rays.

I might be wrong about the source of the dust, but dust it will be.

Quiz: when you think of the Gates Plan, what worries come first to your mind? What are the most important concerns you have? Pause and think of these before reading further. Because I’m going to tell you the government’s first major concern and don’t want to prejudice your thinking.

Have it?

Here’s the government’s main worry about blocking the sun’s rays: “Of particular importance is consideration of potential jeopardy to diverse communities and intergenerational equity.”

Experts Cause World’s End, Diverse Communities Suffering Intergenerational Inequity Hardest Hit

The document is keen on vice signaling: “The Biden-Harris Administration strongly affirms that climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the world, particularly those countries and communities most vulnerable to its adverse effects.”

There’s our favorite joke again.

Anyway, just how will they heft sufficient dust into the stratosphere or space to block the sun, and what will happen when they do so?

They do not say. They haven’t a clue.

The report is forty-four pages of stalling. There is plenty of O, Woe Is Us! because of “climate change”. How health might, someday, be negatively affected. How crops might, someday, be negatively affected. How pollination might, someday, be negatively affected. How wildfires might, someday, be negatively affected. How geopolitics might, someday, be negatively affected. How “environmental justice” might, someday, be negatively affected.

Like all such reports, the Experts behind it find it impossible to believe, or to state, that any good can come from “climate change.”

Indeed, so wishy washy, so full of vaporous nothing, is this mandated report, that we suspect it was written with great reluctance. All the usual “what if” horrors are there, but in boilerplate fashion. Yes, it has the fingerprints of the White House’s DIE zampolit who ensured all the proper shibboleths were included. But that’s it.

The whole thing remains a giant nothing. Which means not all Experts have lost their minds, or that none are bright enough to think of how to do what they were asked.


I’m happy to announce that I have done what the Experts did, or could, not, and thought about the plan to inject particles into the stratosphere.

The best analogy we have is the Mt Pinatubo eruption in the PI in 1991. Government Experts say about 17 megatons of sulfur dioxide were spit into the stratosphere, which knocked back some of the sun’s rays, lowering Northern Hemisphere temperatures, at the peak, “of up to” half a degree C. Or about 1 degree in civilized units. You have to love the use of marketing language: “up to”.

It took about a year for the SO2 to mix around the globe, and it lasted about two years before reacting and precipitating out. The average over two years might have been something like 0.1 degree C decrease in global average temperature.

Anyway, 17 megatons every two years gets “up to” 0.5 C decrease, on average, and probably closer to 0.1 C. If you are feeling magnanimous, make it the full 0.5 C decrease. Per hemisphere. We’d need another 17 megatons for the Southern Hemisphere. For a total (doing this without a calculator, friends) 34 megatons. Or, since this last two years, 17 megatons per year. To get “up to” a half degree decrease.

That, my dear friends, is a lot of SO2. To inject each and every year, apparently for forever, since the amount of dreaded CO2 isn’t decreasing. And they claim it’s CO2 causing temperature increases.

Now unless Experts have a plan into teasing volcanoes into erupting (easy, if they’re female), they’re going to have to get that SO2 up there another way.

Airplanes? One big jet carries about 300 persons at about 200 lb per person, which is 60,000 pounds. Or 30 tons. To get 17 megatons we’d need to cram SO2 onto just under 300 thousand flights a year. Which is about 775 flights each and every day—forever—shooting up to the stratosphere to dump their loads of SO2.

Alas, ordinary airplanes are not going to get to the stratosphere, which starts at about 30 miles up.

So it’s rockets.

Heavy-lift rockets carry, wokepedia says, 20,000 to 50,000 kg. Which is 44 thousand to 110 thousand pounds, or about 22 to 55 tons. About the same, then, as large jets. So we’d need about the same number of rocket flights, 500 to 1,000 every day. Each day. Forever.

It costs about $10,000 per kg for a rocket to heft junk into low-earth orbit (link below). Let’s shave a 0 off of that since we’re only going 50 to 100 miles up. This is fair, since these rockets will surely be single use. Let’s be Santa Claus and say $1,000 per kg or 2.2 pounds. That’s roughly a million for a ton.

And we need 17 megatons, which is 17 million million bucks per year. Which is a trillion. Every year. Each year. Forever.

And all this is before the cost of the SO2 itself. Which isn’t free. One source, if I read it right, has 800 pound drums for a bulk price of $8 per. Well, with deep discounts and frequent customer status, make this $2 per ton. Which we need 17 megatons, or only $34 million a year, an exceptional bargain.

To lower the temperature “up to” a half a degree C. A thousand rockets a day, forever.

At best. This all assumes Experts models are perfect and that CO2 is as demonic as they say it is, et cetera. And that the bureaucracy created to launch the rockets is costless. And that China’s crop failure in some year isn’t blamed on Experts, and war commences, etc. etc.


I reject the stratosphere plan as simplistic, because the particles accreting around SO2 would precipitate out. As we saw, they’d have to be continually injected into the stratosphere

So in service to our idiot insane unscrupulous rulers, I have done some back-of-the-envelope calculations about launching dust into space. This would only have to be done once.

The closest point we could put the dust would be in the first Lagrangian point, which is 1.5 x 10^9 meters out. There it would become a positive menace to celestial navigation. But it might discourage aliens from believing there is intelligent life on earth.

Dry dirt weighs about one to two metric tons per cubic meter. Let’s be generous and say 1 x 10^3 kg.

There has to be some density of dust. We don’t want solid chunks like an opaque wall of dirt a meter thick. So let’s spread that one cubic meter of dirt out to, say, 100 square meters (about 33 feet a side: thin!). We can ignore the depth. How they can spread this evenly in zero gravity is anyone’s guess. It would seem to be next to an impossible task. But never mind. These are Experts.

The little patch would block, being extraordinarily generous, say 1% of the impinging solar radiation. Sunlight would hit the patch and and 1% would careen off into space. Maybe to end up on Mars, if we angle everything just right. Is this a Musk plot?

Now the earth’s surface is about 5 x 10^9 km^2, but of course only half that surface faces the sun at any time. And a good chuck–let’s be charitable and say only half of the half—receives direct radiation, the rest getting bent (and thus not as strong) rays. That makes, rounding down to make it easy, 1 x 10^9 km^2 of important surface area. And, of course, in 1 square kilometer there are 1 million square meters. So the amount of the earth’s surface getting hit with serious sun is about 1 x 10^15 m^2.

Our biggest, and nicest of all to Experts, assumption is that the sun’s rays are “straight”. They point right from the sun to earth. So that—and this isn’t right, but it’s way in favor of Experts—an area blocked out in space becomes the same area blocked on earth. This represents an extreme Best Case Scenario.

That means we’d need 1 x 10^15 m^2 of dust, ignoring thickness, to block less than 1% of the incoming radiation. In every 100 m^2 of dust is one cubic meter of dirt. So we’d need 1 x 10^13 cubic meters of dirt. Which weighs 1 x 10^16 kg.

As we saw above, it costs between $10,000 to $100,000 per kg to launch this in low orbit. Since we’re being generous, let’s call it $10,000. Very generous, because low orbit is far from L1.

Which means it would cost about 1 x 10^20 dollars to block about 1% of incoming solar radiation. That’s before considering we’re not getting the dirt-carrying rockets back, and they have a lot farther to go than low-earth orbit.

How much is 1 x 10^20 dollars? Well, a trillion is 1 x 10^12. So that’s 100 million trillion. Which is a lot.

And how much is 1% of blocked sunlight? My friends, very little. Almost nothing. Especially considering that if you use a plausible instead of generous scenario, it will be much less than 1%. It’s still enough to excite oligarchs, rulers, and Experts who think they can latch onto the scheme and get their cuts from it, though.

Well, I did all this over a cup of coffee early yesterday morning, and double-checked nothing since the task was so depressing, so maybe you can see tweaks or fixes.

    Another study is required to address how to prevent global “colding” when a volcano erupts after we have situated our dust shade. Maybe each of us will have a Google app on our phone to adjust ambient temperature to our liking.

    The Experts want to replace electricity generating facilities with solar panels AND they want to block the sun. There are no words.

  4. Paulus Rexus Legitimus

    Haven’t done any trials or anything like that but I theorised a plausible scheme that’s cheap, very doable, requires no rockets & has the potential to cause ice planet earth. I better keep it to myself.

    Why not have Hunter Biden snort whatever WH pixy dust is bagged and hidden, it’s white and, hence, reflective. Launch him into space and have him sneeze. Done.

    I’m certain volume would not be an issue for him.

    Sure, we’d have to do this daily, but I bet hunter is up to the task.

  6. Steve

    Briggs, you fool! (I always wanted to say that.) Borrowing from that enchantress from Milwaukee, “Don’t use our dirt. We need our dirt. Use dey dirt!” See? Diverse communities hardest hit.

    But a possible friendly amendment to your modest proposal? We do have plenty of bureaucrats and politicians and Experts we could use in lieu of dirt. Then we follow that up by sending up busloads of illegal aliens to slather white paint on them.

    All science should be able to make predictions. My model predicts these kinds of reports would trouble us no more.

    the same people who can’t build a train in California want to block the sun

    How will they do it? The idiots in charge seem intent on causing a nuclear conflict between Russia and Ukraine, so nuclear winter!

  9. Cary D Cotterman

    Holy sufferin’ Jeezuz, what will these lunatics come up with next? Every time I think I know they have reached the absolute zenith of idiocy, they come up with something that sets a new standard.

  10. spetzer86

    Just a guess, but I’m thinking it’d take far fewer than 10^2 climate scientists / politicians lofted on a one-way trip to L1 to eliminate Climate Change as a conversational topic for the rest of our lifetimes. I’d point out this plan will have a near zero impact on the planet’s life supporting functionality at minimal cost.

    3 Days of Darkness to Flatten the Temperature Curve!

    “You bastards won’t wear masks,” scream the Expurts, “So we will put a big mask over the Earth! Then we will fire our rockets at the moon until it is appropriately socially distanced away!”

    “And once we’ve blotted out the Sun, we won’t tolerate any of your hateful jokey memes that ‘you’ll fight in the shade’ or your The Matrix & Simpson’s Montgomery Burns images! That’s disinformation! Calls to Violence! White cloudy supremacy! Your bank accounts will be frozen faster than the immediate winter that will descend upon you! You wil enjoy your protein bug bars once all the crops are dead after which we will ration out the precious stockpiles of artificial wheat bought at a high price from the Gates Foundation’s farmlands from here to Ukraine while he lords over us like a technicolored tranny Joseph in Egypt! Your children will never know a sunrise or a natural rainbow other than the sex-banner that is our standard! Accept it! This is what you voted for, and if you didn’t, you tolerated it, which is just as good as consent in our book!”

    Twitter’s @Just_Perceive reminds us “Blocking the sun while promoting solar energy is pure genius.”

    Just a couple of comments.
    1) The stratosphere starts at different altitudes based on latitude; as low as 7 Km in the polar regions and as high as 20 Km in the tropics. Lots of airplanes fly in the stratosphere every day; rockets not really needed.
    2) The reduction in sunlight from the 17 million tons of SO2 was as high as 10% in the northern hemisphere ( The temperature response was small in part because of the short duration of the solar reduction and large thermal mass of the oceans, and in part because the Pacific immediately switched from ENSO la Nina to el Nino, liberating a vast quantity of heat from the tropical Pacific, further reducing the temperature response.
    3) A steady supply of SO2 over a long time would likely have a greater than expected effect on surface temperatures based on Pinatubo.

    Actually trying to reduce Earth’s surface temperature with SO2 (which oxidizes to SO3 aerosol) would indeed be costly and potentially dangerous, but it is not as technically far fetched as Briggs makes it sound. In addition, any such effort would never start as a giant program, but entered only slowly, with continuous monitoring of effects. I am not advocating using SO2, but I don’t dismiss it completely should warming actually become a problem in the future (it most certainly is not a problem now).

  15. L1 is unstable. You can’t plop an object or – worse – an unconnected structure in there and expect it to last. It has to orbit around L1 and I *think* it has to do periodic adjustments or else it’ll fly off. So, (1) you’ll need more dirt (something like an Earth-size sphere centered on L1) and (2) you’ll need to replenish it periodically. However, reaching L1 might not be much more difficult than reaching LEO, assuming you perform direct ascent and not orbit transfer. But I didn’t do the numbers.

    They’re sending cluster bombs to Ukraine because it’s turned into a cluster f—k. Military talk.
