There are perhaps 20 or 30 different scientific solutions for the greenhouse effect / global warming, they come with varying degrees of conviction behind them. Some have little controllability and once instigated they can’t be stopped, others are fully controllable and can be turned on and off, or scaled up and down at will. Sulphur Blanket ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ One scheme advocated by Prof. Paul Crutzen is to inject sulphur dioxide into the upper atmosphere and so mimic the cooling effect that is a consequence of major volcanic eruptions. The plan being to launch sulphur laden rockets, the sulphur would then be burned at altitudes upwards of 30km from Earth’s surface and so envelop the planet in a thin layer of reflective sulphur dioxide gas, enough to reflect some of the solar radiation back into space before it reaches the Earth’s surface. Unfortunately sulphur dioxide was the primary contributor to acid rain and it’s many other associated problems. So perhaps not the best idea ever conceiv
