Dangers seen in tweaking the planet By KIRAN CHUG   06/04/2011

Planting fake trees, setting up mirrors in space and pumping iron into the oceans could be new tools in the battle against climate change.

Scientists and policymakers gathered in Wellington last month for a workshop on geo-engineering as work steps up around the world on trialling techniques such as fertilising the oceans or pumping aerosols into the atmosphere.

At least one approach has been made to New Zealand by a United States company seeking permission to test fertilising part of the Southern Ocean with iron in a bid to gain carbon credits.

No international rules or policies exist to control such activities, and New Zealand scientists are urging caution.

The workshop was hosted by the Royal Society of New Zealand, and organised by Philip Boyd, principal scientist at the Otago University and Niwa Centre of Chemical and Physical Oceanography, who said nothing had come from the US company’s scoping mission.

However, he warned that though overseas businesses were promoting geo-engineering “as the next dotcom”, not enough research had been done into possible side-effects for large-scale projects to be launched.

    Geo engineering is a very new invented “”science”” thats what they want to call it a science !!. The truth is it is “”nothing”” and I do mean “”nothing””, except of course a group of funded individuals who have set out to experiment on the world and all who live in it as a unavoidable side affect.
    You could say they are a group who intend to convince you and I that the emperor truly does have a knew coat on !! But we learnt as children he walked naked , nevertheless enough did believe the propaganda to be hoodwinked into not believing what they actualy saw, based simlpy on the lies of a few !! We live in very strange times at the hands of very few but, exceedingly freeky people !!
