Injecting sulfur ‘Artificially’ into the atmosphere may reduce global warming: Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen

nobel laureate paul crutzenThe earth can be relieved of the increasing global warming by injecting sulfur into the atmosphere! Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen has proposed his ‘albedo2 enhancement method’ that artificially injects sulfur into the earth’s stratosphere, offsetting the greenhouse gas warming.

Fossil fuel-burning – significant contributor towards global warming, releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere — releases sulfur into the earth’s atmosphere, in the form of sulfate particles. These sulfate particles in turn help cooling down the planet by reflecting solar radiation back into space.

Crutzen’s proposed planet-saving scheme is based on this phenomenon.
