Can the CIA Control Climate Change?

The CIA, in partnership with other U.S. government agencies, is funding a $630,000 scientific study into the plausibility and potential effects of climate engineering to reduce global warming. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

"The Central Intelligence Agency is funding a scientific study that will investigate whether humans could use geoengineering to alter Earth’s environment and stop climate change," report Chris Mooney and Dana Liebelson. "The National Academy of Sciences will run the 21-month project, which is the first NAS geoengineering study financially supported by an intelligence agency. With the spooks’ money, scientists will study how humans might influence weather patterns, assess the potential dangers of messing with the climate, and investigate possible national security implications of geoengineering attempts."

"Although previous efforts to manipulate weather and climate have often been met with mockery, many geoengineering proposals 'are fundamentally doable, relatively cheap, and do appear to be able to reduce climate risk significantly, but with risks,' explains David Keith, a Harvard researcher and top geoengineering proponent."
