MIT researchers think they know how to completely stop global warming

A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) believe they have discovered a way to completely stop global warming.

They propose creating transparent bubbles out of silicon. These would be strung together in space, like a “raft”. The assembly would be the size of Brazil and block dangerous solar radiation.

Temperatures have risen steadily on Earth in recent centuries, largely due to the burning of fossil fuels, and the balance in ecosystems has been disturbed. A new hole in the ozone layer has been discovered, and permafrost and glaciers are melting at an alarming rate.

The MIT researchers’ concept is not new. It is based on the idea of astronomer Roger Angel, who proposed building a ‘cloud’ of small spacecraft to block radiation from the Sun.

The “raft” would be taken to our solar system’s L1 Langrange Point. There, a gravitational equilibrium exists, and the bubble could “float” unaffected by the gravitational forces of the Earth or Sun.

Researchers believe that a remotely controlled spacecraft should probably be permanently present in the vicinity of the ‘raft’, to intervene when needed.

But this will not solve other environmental problems, such as air pollution or plastic contamination.

Since 1880, the average global temperature has risen by 0.08 degrees Celsius every decade, according to Climate.gov. Since 1981, the rate of increase has become much faster (plus 0.18 degrees Celsius). The year 2021 was the sixth warmest on record.
