Who remembers this story about the company Make Sunsets launching weather balloons that may have released sulfur particles in the stratosphere?
From MIT Technology Review:
Some researchers who have long studied the technology are deeply troubled that the company, Make Sunsets, appears to have moved forward with launches from a site in Mexico without any public engagement or scientific scrutiny. It’s already attempting to sell “cooling credits” for future balloon flights that could carry larger payloads.
It appears Mexico didn’t take too kindly to this solar geoengineering experiment.
On Friday, the Mexican government issued a statement that it plans to “prohibit and, where appropriate, stop experimentation practices with solar geoengineering in the country,” CNBC reports.
