Bill Gates wants to ‘Cover’ the Sun to avoid Global Warming

Present Calcium Carbonate Powder will be ballooned into the Stratosphere

There are many scientists who have studied how to stop global warming on the planet. Among the most innovative alternatives, we find the proposal of the Harvard University, which intend to launch calcium carbonate dust with balloons into the stratosphere and thus attenuate the sunlight that reaches the surface. Bill Gates finances the project.

The initiative has been called Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx). Calcium carbonate would not only be non-harmful to the ecosystem, but it could also repair the ozone layer, since it could close the holes that exist in it.


Once the scientists have achieved the desired effect with the release of the calcium carbonate powder, it will be removed. In this way, the possible risks to the planet will be reduced and the sunlight will be able to reach the surface again without any impediment.

There are discrepancies among the scientific community regarding this innovative formula to curb global warming, despite the successes that have been obtained in the laboratory. However, in the coming months those responsible for the project of the Harvard University they will have more information about its viability.

This June, in Sweden, the scientists will launch a CaCO3 balloon 20 kilometers high and thus determine if their vision on paper matches what is actually happening. For the moment, they have convinced Bill Gates, who is confident that this represents a breakthrough for humanity.
