Harvard and Yale scientists planning to dim the sun to fight global warming

A new study conducted by researchers at the Harvard and Yale Universities has proposed a new way to combat the issue of global warming, dimming the sun. Even though the new method seems bit cinematic, experts believe that blotting out the sun using chemicals could help the world from fighting adverse climate change.

The study report published in the journal 'Environmental Research Letters' suggests that spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth's lower stratosphere will reduce the brightness of the sun, which will, in turn, cut down the effects of global warming by half. Read more.
