Due to the increase in temperature in the world, serious climatic changes are taking place and a lot of efforts are being made by scientists to prevent this problem.
But the new solution to this problem presented by a team of scientists is mind-boggling.
Under this project, a shield will be created using the moon’s orbit that will reduce the intensity of the sun’s heat reaching the earth.
Experts from the University of Utah in the United States in the journal Plos Climate research published, which called for millions of tons of dust to be collected from the moon and released into space one million miles from Earth, where dust particles would partially block sunlight.
The study found that the amount of particles around it is such that it can effectively partially block sunlight reaching Earth.
Because it doesn’t take much energy to launch these particles from the moon’s surface, it’s a great way to prevent global warming, the researchers said.
He said that for this purpose, a new space station would be needed at a point called the L1 Lagrange point between the Earth and the Sun.
They said that this method is better than other proposed solar geoengineering projects and will not have adverse effects on the Earth’s climate.
But he acknowledged that this is no substitute for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
He said that this project will give us some time to reduce the emission of toxic gases on earth.
An October 2022 report previously stated that the White House was considering a 5-year research project that would examine different ways to reduce the amount of sunlight reaching Earth. , to reduce the effects of global warming.
According to the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, the research will analyze various methods, such as spraying the atmosphere with sulfur dioxide aerosols to reflect sunlight back into space, while also looking at What effects can such methods have on the earth?
