Donald Sutherland's Riding-Mower Pipe-Organ Rain-Seed Gun To Be Replaced By Kilometer-High Suspended Hose And Stadium-Sized Hydrogen Balloon

"Next month, researchers in the U.K. will start to pump water nearly a kilometer up into the atmosphere, by way of a suspended hose. The experiment is the first major test of a piping system that could one day spew sulfate particles into the stratosphere at an altitude of 20 kilometers, supported by a stadium-size hydrogen balloon. The goal is geoengineering, or the 'deliberate, large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment' in the words of the Royal Society of London, which provides scientific advice to policymakers. In this case, researchers are attempting to re-create the effects of volcanic eruptions to artificially cool Earth."
Cloudbusting takes a step forward.

That video chopped off the part where Kate Bush discovers the aliens finally got to Sutherland.

That is the silliest quote I have heard in the last 5 seconds.

Let me opine:
" In this case, researchers are attempting to re-create the effects of volcanic eruptions to artificially cool Earth"

Response. Bullshit. Artificially interfering with the normal ecosystem to cool Earth? What could go wrong? How about stop the global warming crap and focus on maybe figuring out how to use that gizmo in arid environments to pump clouds into the sky from that vast stupid ocean I want to drown them all in.

Solves providing irrigation to difficult to reach areas (combined with cloud seeding or you just have more typhoons) and reduces Al Gore's paranoid delusion of the ocean creeping out from its prison to drown him. God, I wish it would!
