Bill Gates Wants to 'Cover the Sun' to Help Counter Global Warming According to a Forbes post, the billionaire is funding a project that would help dim sunlight. "You can't cover the sun with a finger", but maybe with science and technology yes. According to Forbes , Bill Gates is funding a project that would dim sunlight in order to "cool" the Earth. The research called " Stratospheric Controlled Disturbance Experiment " (SCoPEx for its acronym in English) is carried out by scientists from Harvard University and has the purpose of achieving that the sunlight is reflected outside the atmosphere of our planet. You may be interested: Bill Gates predicts what 2021 will be like, alerts us to our immediate future This solution would be achieved by spraying tons of non-toxic calcium carbonate (CaCO3) into the atmosphere. "SCoPEx is a scientific experiment to advance the understanding of stratospheric aerosols that could be relevant for solar geoengineering," the project page reads. The project will begin to carry out tests that so far consist of releasing a balloon with scientific equipment, which will not spray CaCO3 but will function as a test of maneuver and to explore communications and operating systems. “We plan to use a high-altitude balloon to lift an instrument package approximately 20 km into the atmosphere. Once in place, a very small amount of material (100g 2 kg) will be released to create a disturbed air mass approximately one kilometer long and one hundred meters in diameter. Then we will use the same balloon to measure the resulting changes in the disturbed air mass, including changes in aerosol density, atmospheric chemistry and light scattering, ”they explain. What could go wrong? According to Forbes , scientific opponents of this project believe that solar geoengineering could bring unavoidable risks and extreme changes in weather patterns that would be no different than current warming trends. They also explain that environmentalists fear that a "dramatic" change in mitigation strategy will become a "green light" for greenhouse gases to continue being emitted without any variation in current consumption patterns. ------------------
As salam alaikum, Before I begin: I know astrology and future prediction is haraam... so not going into that. I have an issue I would like some help with: My parents are Hindu spiritual (I converted years ago) and they believe a lot in birth charts/ kundali/ janampatri etc... which charts out the positions of the planets and stars at the time of birth, and the effect that it will have on the child. Now they are convinced that I was born with a bad chart ... some remedies include prayers, charity, donations, etc.... I was thinking I could do donations to make them happy I guess, but don't want to do any prayers ofcourse. This chart reading has been done by numerous reputed astrologers (inspite of my insisting that I do not want it and it is haraam, but they got it done any way for their own satisfaction - if anyone knows Hindus who are particular about it , you would know how much significance this has for them) Would someone be able to advise me with any Islamic duas... I know for a fact that it is Allah who decides our and our children's fates, and not some planets... I need some more assurance that the Imams and Prophets went against this,..i read somewhere about a hadith where someone told Imam Ali (as) not to move for war at a specific time due to the position of the stars, but he still did, and he won with a major victory inspite of going against this guy.... Also, do we have any reverts who may have gone through something similar and proved it all incorrect.. I know for a fact that we shouldn't do it..I didn't...but my parents did.. .what can I do in such a situation? JazakAllah
(bismillah) "We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their ownselves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Quran) is the truth. Is it not sufficient in regard to your Lord that He is a Witness over all things?" (The Qur'an 41:53) (salam) Visit this site to see the Scale of the Universe, Subhanallah Subhanallah there are things unknown to us smaller than the neutron, the neutron is nothing compared to the atom, the atom is nothing compared to the virus, the virus is nothing compared to the bacteria, the bacteria is nothing compared to an ant, the ant is nothing compared to the egg, the egg is nothing compared to the shoe, the shoe is nothing compared to the size of a baby, the size of the baby is nothing compared to the size of the adult, you are nothing compared to a mountain, the mountain is nothing compared to the state, the state is nothing compared to the country, the country is nothing compared to the world, the world is nothing compared to the sun, the sun is nothing compared to the largest stars, the largest stars are nothing compared to the galaxy.... the galaxy is nothing compared to the largest galaxy.... keep zooming out and see how nothing you really are. "He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth." (The Qur'an, 6:101) "And the heaven (is also a sign). We have built it with (Our) Hands (i.e., Capability) and surely We are indeed extending (it) wide." (The Qur'an, 51:47) "All that are in the heavens and the earth entreat Him. Every day He exerciseth (universal) power." (The Qur'an 55:29) "And (remember) the Day when We shall roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books, as We began the first creation, We shall repeat it, (it is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, We shall do it." (The Qur'an 21:104) "Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, "Be," and it is." (The Qur'an 2:117) "So He ordained them seven heavens in two periods, and revealed in every heaven its affair; and We adorned the lower heaven with brilliant stars and (made it) to guard; that is the decree of the Mighty, the Knowing." (The Qur'an 41:12) Then He Istawa (rose over) towards the heaven when it was 'Dukhan' (دخان), and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come, willingly." (Al-Qur'an, سورة فصلت , Fussilat, Chapter #41, Verse #11) Therefore keep waiting for the day when the heaven shall bring an evident 'Dukhan' (دخان), (Al-Qur'an, سورة الدخان , Ad-Dukhan, Chapter #44, Verse #10) To me, these two ayat are very amazing because they inform us of something about the Universe which we have only recently discovered, and by informing us of this, Allah is encouraging us to continue our investigations and scientific pursuits, and then to reflect on our findings, so that we can understand our reality and the true greatness of Allah which is infinitely greater than we can never imagine. Subhanallah, this information, from the Qur'an, hadith, and our current understanding of the Universe, really sheds light on the following narration: Subhanallah... All of the things we know about the Universe, how small we are, how small the atoms are, how large the stars are, how large the galaxies are, how large the visible universe is, and steadily expands... the speed of a turtle, the speed of light... the weight of a feather, the weight of a mountain, the weight of an asteroid.... the darkness of a closet, the darkness of the depths of space.... All of these are but drops in an ocean of wisdom held by our Prophets and Imaams (sa). Consider the following hadith, which is included as part of the Foreword of Al-Kafi: Allahumma sullee `3la Muhammad wa alee Muhammad wa a'jill farajahum Peace be upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad and may Allah hasten their reappearance (salam)
