Brilliant Ideas In Geoengineering

By “brilliant,” I mean stupid. The only good part of this is that they’ll do it off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard.

Scientists Look To Fight Climate Change By Dumping 6,000 Gallons Of Chemicals Into Ocean Near Martha’s Vineyard
The project would see researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) pour approximately 6,000 gallons of sodium hydroxide — a component of lye — into waters ten miles away from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, in August 2024, according to the WSJ.
The underlying concept is to see if the basic sodium hydroxide can reduce the acidity of ocean waters and make those waters more efficient repositories of carbon dioxide, according to the WSJ.

I think warming the water would affect absorbency far more than changing the pH. What I do expect is a massive fish kill.

Hopefully all those dead fish will wash ashore at Martha’s Vineyard.

And yes, your tax dollars are paying for this idiocy.

  1. 7th grade science taught me plants require carbon dioxide to create oxygen. Last I checked they still hadn’t deemed oxygen poisonous… Are people really this ignorant, nowadays or am I missing something?
