Nathan Myhrvold's Anti Global Warming Scheme


Nathan Myhrvold is a former technology officer for Microsoft who has found his own company, Intellectual Ventures, which is involved in a number of technology development programs, including new forms of energy generation.

Nathan Myhrvold also thinks that he has found a cheap and reliable way to solve global warming, which does not involve upending and perhaps destroying the world's economy. The global warming solution proposed by Nathan Myhvold involves


running a hose up to the stratosphere with balloons and using that hose to pump out enough sulfur particles to dim the sun's heat just enough to counteract the effects of global warming. The estimated cost would be about two hundred and fifty million dollars.

Nathan Myhrvold suggests that volcanoes and other natural processes already pump out sulfur into the stratosphere and that his scheme, if adopted, would increase that amount by only one percent. Nathan Myhrvold therefore thinks that there would not be any unintended consequences (like starting a new ice age.)

Nathan Myhrvold's anti global warming scheme is intriguing, even for those people (increasingly most people) who doubt that man caused global warming is actually real. The climate gate scandal involving leaked emails suggests that the data that supports the idea of man caused global warming has been doctored to some extent. Thus there is increasing resistance to the idea of arbitrarily cutting back on carbon emissions before clean energy technology is mature enough to take the place of fossil fuels, thus causing wrenching disruptions in economic growth and personal lifestyles.

One might suggest that Nathan Myhrvold's anti global warming scheme might be part of a more rational solution to climate change, if it is a problem at all. The idea would be consist of the following.

Drop all ideas of government mandated reductions in carbon emissions.

Fund "clean energy" technology that would include not only the politically correct wind and solar, but nuclear, fusion, and space based solar energy.

What if thanks to Nathan Myhrvold we all freeze to death ?

Then what ... ?

Would it not make more sense to spend whatever we will ...

PREPARING for living on a planet that will warm and cool

... rather than try to change a system we do not understand very well ?

You took the words right out of my mouth.

My sentiments exactly.

Heaven forbid we should actually try to curb our pollution efforts.

Wonderful.. Lets just pump more poisons into the atmosphere.

I hope they do it upwind of both your homes. (Nathan and Ron).

Reg,
Don't think it'll be anywhere near my home, but folks in Northern Canada should be watchful.

After watching the 2-part go to TED and see what else he does.

Btw, his company owns some 20,000 patents and doesn't make anything, but does sell its intellectual properties.

FWIW, I'm not making judgement on his ideas just yet, want to hear and see more. - Ron
