Introducing the StratoShield

We’ve invented a “hose to the sky” we call the StratoShield, which is a comparatively cost effective way to do this.

We’ve been working on some ideas related to climate change, as a kind of backup plan in case human effort to curb emissions don’t succeed fast enough to prevent devastating ecological damage. One of the ideas that has captured our imagination is replicating the way volcanoes have at times brought down the temperature of the planet by erupting sulfur dioxide particles up into the stratosphere. We’ve invented a “hose to the sky” we call the StratoShield, which is a comparatively cost effective way to do this. The invention is profiled in SuperFreakonomics and we’re hoping to have some scientific discussion about its potential.

For the first time we’ve got some technical details to share publicly. Please take a look at our StratoShield White Paper if you’d like to know more.
