Company To Release “Particles” Into the Air in Dangerous Plan

Company To Release

( – A startup run by climate activists recently started conducting experiments involving a scientific theory called geoengineering. The practice involves manipulating the Earth’s climate by reflecting sunlight into outer space to reduce the planet’s temperature. The company, called Make Sunsets, plans to release dangerous particles into the atmosphere as part of its ongoing experiments.

The geoengineering company claims it makes “reflective, high-altitude, biodegradable clouds” to help cool the planet. However, as the MIT Technology Review recently reported, it performs potentially dangerous experiments targeting the Earth’s stratosphere with balloons.

The balloons release dangerous sulfur particles into the atmosphere. Make Sunset claims that highly reflective particles can bounce some of the sun’s rays back into space, reducing the Earth’s temperature.

The company released two balloons in April 2022, according to MIT, and on January 1, 2023, the company announced its plans to launch three additional balloons before the end of the month. These so-called “clouds” will “utilize sulfur dioxide [produced] by burning sulfur in the presence of oxygen.”

MIT pointed out a few areas of concern regarding Make Sunsets’ experiments. First, sulfur is a highly toxic substance that can create a phenomenon when released into the atmosphere called “acid rain.”

The National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency have published extensive material discussing the harmful effects of acid rain. For instance, it causes or worsens respiratory diseases like asthma and chronic bronchitis, making breathing difficult for some people. Likewise, it adversely impacts fish, wildlife, plants, trees, and other ecosystems.

The second concern MIT has is that the theory of geoengineering remains questionable within respected scientific circles. Making matters worse, Make Sunsets is conducting its experiments without any oversight.

Perhaps the most questionable aspect of the company’s operations is its fundraising effort. For a $10 fee, interested parties can purchase a “Cooling Credit.” Make Sunsets claims it will use the money collected from each purchase to “release at least one gram” of its “clouds” into the atmosphere, “offsetting the warming effect” of a ton of carbon dioxide for 12 months. This result has not been proven.
