Radical billionaire George Soros is promoting a dangerous new technology that seeks to fight “climate change” by blocking heat and light from the Sun to cool Earth’s global temperature.
Soros touted the plan during his address at the Munich Security Conference on Thursday.
According to Fox News, Soros boasted that he had discovered a process where white clouds are created to reflect sunlight away from the planet’s surface.
He claims the technology will help to prevent ice sheets from melting.
Ice sheets melting in Greenland in particular, he claimed, could doom human civilization.
“Our civilization is in danger of collapsing because of the inexorable advance of climate change,” Soros said.
“The melting of the Greenland ice sheet would increase the level of the oceans by seven meters.
“That poses a threat to the survival of our civilization,” he continued.
“I wasn’t willing to accept that fate, so I tried to find out whether anything could be done to avoid it.
“I was directed to Sir David King, a climate scientist who had been chief scientific advisor to previous British governments.”
“Sir David King has a plan to repair the climate system,” he added.
“He wants to recreate the albedo effect by creating white clouds high above the Earth.
“With proper scientific safeguards and in consultation with local indigenous communities, this project could help restabilize the Arctic climate system which governs the entire global climate system.
“Unless we change the way, we deal with climate change, our civilization will be thoroughly disrupted by rising temperatures that will make large parts of the world practically unlivable.”
Sir David King, the former U.K. special envoy on climate change and chief scientific adviser, founded the Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge University in 2019.
The organization was started to further study and pursue refreezing the Arctic, carbon emission reduction, and greenhouse gas removal.
Refreezing the Arctic is a hypothetical proposal that King has heralded in which scientists would use man-made clouds to reflect the sunlight away from the North Pole, the South Pole, and the Himalayas in the summer.
King told Alberto Lidji, a U.K.-based researcher, in a recent interview that the technology would be cheap to produce.
Meanwhile, similar methods of weather control to combat global warming such as solar geoengineering have been roundly criticized by scientists.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has funded a project to study such a technology.
“The risks of solar geoengineering are poorly understood and can never be fully known,” dozens of scientists wrote in an open letter to governments last year, imploring them to prohibit the technology.
“Impacts will vary across regions, and there are uncertainties about the effects on weather patterns, agriculture, and the provision of basic needs of food and water.”
