Fully Reversing Climate Change is Possible, MIT Scientists Claim

Fully Reversing Climate Change is Possible, MIT Scientists Claim

Perhaps everybody knows by now the horrible effects that climate change can have on our planet: global warming, drought, water becoming scarcer, and more. In a nutshell, climate change is bad, and we need to get rid of it.

According to BGR, scientists from MIT think that it may be a good idea to rely on the so-called “space bubbles,” meaning thin film-like silicon bubbles, to get rid of climate change by fully reversing it or at least eliminating a part of its effects. These bubbles would grow as huge as an entire continent each and could offer more protection against dangerous solar radiation. We’re talking about a theory that has its roots in a concept that Roger Angel first proposed, who is a British-born American astronomer.

Destination: L1 Lagrangian Point

The plan of the MIT scientists implies sending the space bubbles to the L1 Lagrangian Point, meaning somewhere between the Earth and the Sun. In such a location, the space bubbles wouldn’t be influenced significantly by any of the two space objects’ gravity. 

Climate change is becoming such a serious topic that it needs action fast. Back in April, we found out that Twitter won’t tolerate anymore those skeptics who claim that climate change doesn’t exist or that it’s not as serious as scientists claim it to be.

Twitter stated in a blog post:

We believe that climate denialism shouldn’t be monetized on Twitter, and that misrepresentative ads shouldn’t detract from important conversations about the climate crisis,

We recognize that misleading information about climate change can undermine efforts to protect the planet.

In the recent past, researchers kept warning about the effects of climate change. Some of them have a lot to do with weather, as our planet is seeing higher and higher temperatures over the years.
