    Geoengineering was one would know, is an attempt to mitigate Global Warming through various means. The following website discusses a dire consequence of one attempt of Geoengineering which according to the site is being put in place which is that of injecting sulfur into the atmosphere in order to reflect the sun's rays and cool down earth.

    While this sounds like an adequate solution there seems to be some disadvantages which according to this site include the potential to cause Global Warming and potentially turn earth into a pressure cooker like Venus: Global Geoengineering Fueling Venus Syndrome Global Geoengineering Fueling Venus Syndrome | GeoengineeringWatch.org .

    I am not sure about the adequacy of the site as it does sound like it is preaching some sort of conspiracy theory, however while this blog in particular seems to be almost devoid of evidence (apart from the references) the site itself does contain evidence to support its claim (I think), for example interviews and documentation of tests on precipitation. However I could be wrong about this so I was wondering what those in the Science Community think of this claim.

    That particular site comes across as a lying, panic-mongering crackpot "organisation".
    Most definitely conspiracy theorists - chemtrails, HAARP is a weapon, Tesla superweapons...

    I always enjoy the way conspiracy theorists have no sense of self awareness.

    "Top secret organisations are secretly spraying secret chemicals for an unknown purpose!"
    ...followed by 100's of photos of the
    secret activities of the secret organisations.
    ...and links to the top secret organisations' websites.

    Shh! You shouldn't have mentioned this. It's a secret.

    Man, that's awful.

    I guess one knows a topic is dead when the overall theme of it gets made fun of :3
