Right Wing Nut Case: "Bill Gates wants to block the Sun to address global warming....."

Bill Gates, among others, is backing the Harvard Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment. The SCoPEx is researching a form of “geoengineering” to prevent global warming. In this case, they’re exploring the idea of spraying tiny particles into the air to reflect sunlight and make the earth cooler. Towards that end, Harvard scientists are planning to fly a balloon full of equipment 12 miles above Sweden next year to gather data.

3. I thought Mr Burns tried that. It didn't work then.

4. The three days of no flights over the US after 911 proved this could work.

The absence of contrails in conjunction with exceptionally clear skies produced convincing data.

edit: My apologies to a previous comment which explained this.
