Scientists Propose Dumping Hundreds of Tons of Iron into Ocean to ‘Stop Global Warming’?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/07/22 13:38:45

In an attempt to ‘stop global warming’, scientists have been experimenting with dumping several tons of iron into the Antarctic ocean in order to potentially fertilize the development of plankton.

Despite raising a multitude of red flags raised from leading scientific organizations and health watch organizations, a new study is now calling for the practice to be even further extended as a worldwide ‘geoengineering’ strategy to alter the climate via dumping hundreds of tons of iron dust into the ocean.

Previous research found that by dumping the heavy metal into oceans worldwide it could not only devastate the marine life population, but deplete oxygen levels and explode the growth of certain unwanted organisms.

The implementation began with a California-based company known as Planktos, a self-described private ‘ecorestoration’ company.

While the widescale iron dumping experiment was halted due to lack of funding, some are still calling for the plan to be followed through.

    YES! YES!
    FINALLY, an organization that is at least "doing something" to *STOP GLOBAL WARMING*!
    However, the dumping iron into the oceans, is simply "Voodoo Science".
    GLOBAL WARMING IS AN INDISPUTABLE FACT! And must be HALTED!
    No matter what the racist Conservatives and Birthers believe!
    But "We 'uns is gonna dump tons of iron in that there big ol' ocean!"
    WILL NOT DO IT!

    *HERE* is what should *REALLY* to be done, to *ACTUALLY* stop *GLOBAL WARMING* before the WHOLE WORLD IS NOTHING BUT A LIFELESS BALL IN SPACE:
    The way it *SHOULD* work: The sunlight comes through the atmosphere as it was designed to do by Evolution.
    The warmth and radiation of the Sun's light strikes the deep veins of gold, gently warming the planet evenly, allowing a stable temperature to be maintained, preventing buildup of pressure on Tectonic plates from the too rapid expansion, or "thermal-shock".

    Problem: The gold has been taken out of the deep veins underground, and spread *ALL OVER THE WORLD*, causing the sun's rays to strike the gold scattered it all over the beam path, and it is then DISPERSE, causing a convection effect, raising the temperature of the earth dramatically. The dispersal of gold over such a wide area as we see today, causes "heat flux" of the Earth's crust; putting tremendous pres...

The dispersal of gold over such a wide area as we see today, causes "heat flux" of the Earth's crust; putting tremendous pressure on the Tectonic plates, causing earthquakes in numbers and size like we've rarely seen, which in turn causes massive tsunamis!

    Solution to Global Warming and to *SAVE ALL LIFE ON EARTH*: **ALL* the *GOLD* that can be found, should be gathered up, and transported to a remote location in Arizona, where I will personally take possession and gather it into one location, under my watchful eye.
    There is no time to waste! The fate of *MANKIND*, nay, THE WORLD ITSELF, depends on sending me all the GOLD IMMEDIATELY!
    The very FATE of the WORLD, rest with *YOU THE READERS* to act quickly!

    Let me get this straight, the tree huggers want to poison the oceans?

    I bet they want me to pay for it too.

    They have truly gone insane.

    Sure. Let's kill all the fish and other life in the ocean so there will be no eco system and food chain. Sorry. No way man! We have to save our oceans, not ruin them.

    Didn't they do this in that movie "Soylent Green"?

    I'm not sure. I don't believe I saw the movie. But it's scary if that's what was done.

    Watch it, but don't let anyone tell you what it's about. It's one of those movies that if you know what's going to happen or what it's about it will ruin it.

    Excuse me?

    PLEASE say these eco-nuts are getting some well-needed mental health exams ..
