From The Files Of Absurdity, Volume CXXII: Bill Gates Does Not Understand The Hoax Of Global Warming!

Over a year ago, I put up an article in my "Files Of Absurdity" showing how some scientists launched a scheme where they would have hundreds of ships sucking up the water out of the oceans, and transforming that water into water vapour to form clouds in the atmosphere (link: Their idea was to use the clouds to block sunlight, and in "theory" cause the planet to cool, and save it from the dreaded "Global Warming".

I called it absurd then, and I am calling their latest attempt at exactly this same scenario as absurd now. It seems that according to this latest article from, the hair brained scientists that came up with the water vapour generating ships have found the funding for their ludicrous scheme from none other than Bill Gates himself! Here is that article:

Bill Gates pays for ‘artificial’ clouds to beat greenhouse gases

The first trials of controversial sunshielding technology are being planned after the United Nations failed to secure agreement on cutting greenhouse gases.

Bill Gates, the Microsoft billionaire, is funding research into machines to suck up ten tonnes of seawater every second and spray it upwards. This would seed vast banks of white clouds to reflect the Sun’s rays away from Earth.

The British and American scientists involved do not intend to wait for international rules on technology that deliberately alters the climate. They believe that the weak outcome of December’s climate summit in Copenhagen means that emissions will continue to rise unchecked and that the world urgently needs an alternative strategy to protect itself from global warming.

Many methods of cooling the planet, collectively known as geoengineering, have been proposed. They include rockets to deploy millions of mirrors in the stratosphere and artificial trees to suck carbon dioxide from the air. Most would be prohibitively expensive and could not be deployed for decades.

However, a study last year calculated that a fleet of 1,900 ships costing £5 billion could arrest the rise in temperature by criss-crossing the oceans and spraying seawater from tall funnels to whiten clouds and increase their reflectivity.

Silver Lining, a research body in San Francisco, has received $300,000 (£204,000) from Mr Gates. It will develop machines to convert seawater into microscopic particles capable of being blown up to the cloud level of 1,000 metres. This would whiten clouds by increasing the number of nuclei.

The trial would involve ten ships and 10,000sq km (3,800sq miles) of ocean. Armand Neukermanns, who is leading the research, said that whitening clouds was “the most benign form of engineering” because, while it might alter rainfall, the effects would cease soon after the machines were switched off.

Other types of geoengineering, such as mimicking volcanoes by using aircraft to spray reflective sulphate particles in the stratosphere, would have much longer effects on weather patterns.

Stephen Salter, Emeritus Professor of Engineering Design at the University of Edinburgh, said that there was no need to wait for regulations because the trials would not add chemicals to the atmosphere. But Sir David King, former chief scientific adviser to the Government, said that experiments with potential consequences beyond national borders needed international regulations. He told The Times: “I do not see any geoengineering solution which does not have unintended consequences or is not far too expensive.”

NTS Notes: These morons still don't get it. They want to generate water vapour into our atmosphere without having the foggiest notion that water vapour itself is a REAL greenhouse gas! If these morons start generating their water vapour clouds as stated, they run the risk of causing the planet to warm rather than cool due to increased water vapour in the atmosphere. What the hell are they thinking? And they call this "sun shielding technology"?

This is absolutely ludicrous indeed, but borders on insanity. The Global Warming nutters in their twisted efforts to "save" the planet could potentially do more harm than good by this stupid idea. Lets get the truth out, people!

More to come
