Liberal megadonor George Soros spoke in support of using an experimental weather control technology to alleviate global warming during a speech last week in Germany.
Soros, who has given millions of dollars to climate change groups through his nonprofit Open Society Foundations, touted a theoretical project to “repair the climate system” by creating white clouds that reflect sunlight away from certain warming areas with the goal of preventing ice sheets in Greenland from melting, Fox News reported.
“Our civilization is in danger of collapsing because of the inexorable advance of climate change,” Soros said during the speech in Munich.
“The melting of the Greenland ice sheet would increase the level of the oceans by seven meters,” he said. “That poses a threat to the survival of our civilization. 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.”
King, who formerly served as special envoy on climate change and chief scientific adviser for the United Kingdom, founded the Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge University in 2019, to pursue similar studies.
“[King] has developed a theory which is widely shared by climate scientists,” Soros said. “It holds that the global climate system used to be stable but human intervention disrupted it. The Arctic Circle used to be sealed off from the rest of the world by winds that blew in a predictable, circular, counter-clockwise direction, but man-made climate change broke this isolation.”
King “has a plan to repair the climate system,” said Soros. “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.”
King reportedly claims it would be cheap technology to create.
Some scientists have reportedly pushed back against King’s plan, due to the uncertainty of its potential effects on the planet.
“The risks of solar geoengineering are poorly understood and can never be fully known,” dozens of scientists wrote in an open letter to governments back in 2022. “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.”
