Aerosols to protect Earth from global warming will be sprayed into the stratosphere NEXT YEAR

Aerosols to protect Earth from global warming will be sprayed into the stratosphere NEXT YEAR, but scientists warn the results could be 'catastrophic

The first-of-its-kind experiment from scientists at Harvard University in Maryland will pump small amounts of aerosol gases into the stratosphere to reflect the sun's rays away from Earth.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG? 

In 2014, researchers warned of what might happen if climate engineering stopped after a few decades for technical or political reasons.

‘For several methods we saw a rapid change in the simulated climate when climate engineering ended,’ said Dr David Keller from the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany.  

For example, if after 50 years the sun's rays were no longer partially blocked, Earth warmed by several degrees within a few decades.

Dr Keller said: ‘This change would be much faster than the current rate of climate change, with potentially even more catastrophic consequences.’

SIDE EFFECTS OF OTHER GEOENGINEERING STRATEGIES 

Afforestation: This technique would irrigate deserts, such as those in Australia and North Africa, to plant millions of trees that could absorb carbon dioxide.

Drawback: This vegetation would also draw in sunlight that the deserts currently reflect back into space, and so contribute to global warming.

Artificial ocean upwelling: Engineers would use long pipes to pump cold, nutrient-rich water upward to cool ocean-surface waters.

Drawback: If this process ever stopped it could cause oceans to rebalance their heat levels and rapidly change the climate.

Ocean alkalinisation: This involves heaping lime into the ocean to chemically increase the absorption of carbon dioxide.

Drawback: Study suggests it will have of little use in reducing global temperatures.

Ocean iron fertilisation: The method involves dumping iron into the oceans to improve the growth of photosynthetic organisms that can absorb carbon dioxide.

Drawback: Study suggests it will have of little use in reducing global temperatures.

Solar radiation management: This would reduce the amount of sunlight Earth receives, by shooting reflective sulphate-based aerosols into the atmosphere.

Drawback: Carbon dioxide would still build up in the atmosphere. 

 

WHAT IS CALCITE? 

After examining stratospheric chemistry and ruling out most of the periodic table, the researchers landed on calcite - a constituent of limestone.

It is the most stable form of calcium carbonate. 

They found that this could neutralise emission-based acids in the atmosphere while also reflecting light and cooling the planet. 

Calcite is one of the most common compounds in the Earth's crust, and only a small amount would be needed for the solar geoengineering.

Calcite is one of the most common compounds in the Earth's crust, and only a small amount would be needed for the solar geoengineering.

The researchers are currently testing calcite in the lab conditions designed to mimic the atmosphere.

While it may help to alleviate the problem, the researchers note that this method of solar engineering is not a solution to climate change.

'Geoengineering is like taking painkillers,' said Keutsch.

'When things are really bad, painkillers can help but they don't address the cause of a disease and they may cause more harm than good. We really don't know the effects of geoengineering but that is why we're doing this research.'

The research is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Authorities tightened Security at places of worship

kuwait church security

The Ministry of the Interior increased the police patrols in some places of worship — churches, mosques and Husseiniyas — as a precaution measure to prevent any tampering with the security of the country or trying to carry out a terrorist act against the worshippers.

According to local media report, this extra security is in places of worship and surrounding areas in anticipation of any emergency, especially after the terrorists targeted the Egyptian churches. Meanwhile, it is reported that one of the suspect suicide bomber had worked as an accountant in Kuwait for four months before he travelled to Turkey.

No More Carrying Cooked Dukra Mass or Pulimunchi to Dubai?

Next time when you plan your visit to your hometown from UAE/Dubai, make sure you think twice before you take back any food items or medicines that your relatives or friends might have requested you to bring along with you on your return trip. All this time people used to pack some traditional and authentic home cooked delicacies like for Catholics- items like Pork Bafat, Pork Sorpotel, Pork Indad, Mutton stew, etc; and Hindus favorite like Kori (Chicken ) sukka, Kori puli munchie, Marvai Pundi, Chicken ghee roast etc; and Muslims favorite like Dum Biriyani, Mutton chops, phirini etc – NOT anymore, since Dubai customs have strictly restricted in carrying home cooked or for that matter, food from restaurants to UAE/Dubai.

Cooked Dukra Mass Pulimunchi to Dubai

Cooked Dukra Mass Pulimunchi to Dubai 1

Many times in the past travelers have got into trouble with the customs for carrying medicines that are illegal to carry to a different country- and now UAE/Dubai have strictly enforced a law prohibiting carrying cooked food. But still, many passengers take the risk by carrying banned items/food and later when they get caught they face all kinds of consequences. S the best thing to do is strictly abide by the rules and regulations of the UAE/Dubai customs, and stay out of trouble-Period!

Travel guide of banned items and Guidelines for bringing medicines and drugs to the UAE

Five dead as militants attack Philippine tourist island

ryykrtltl

Five people including a Philippine police officer were killed Tuesday in clashes with 10 suspected members of the Abu Sayyaf kidnap group on the resort island of Bohol, authorities said. The incursion would be the first on a major Philippine tourist destination in recent years by the Abu Sayyaf, which has long engaged in kidnappings for ransom - often targeting foreigners in the lawless southern Philippines. Five bodies have been recovered at the scene of the fighting, Philippine military spokesman Brigadier-General Restituto Padilla said on ABS-CBN television in Manila. At least one policeman was confirmed killed in the fight, national police spokesman Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos said in a statement.

"Security forces reported that the armed group is well-armed with heavy-calibre weapons, but now cornered in an isolated section" of Bohol, Philippine military chief of staff General Eduardo Ano said in a statement. It comes after the US and Australian embassies warned their citizens this week about possible kidnappings by "terrorist groups" in the central Philippines.

Bohol is a major tourist destination, where foreign tourists swim with whale sharks and marvel at tiny primates called tarsiers, go on cruises aboard boats on crystal-clear rivers and lounge at white-sand beaches. Military spokesman Padilla said the army had received information over the past few weeks about "a potential activity on the part of some lawless elements to disturb the peace" in the area.

"The clearing operations are ongoing and we are pouring in more forces to help and assist. We hope to finish this by the end of the day," the spokesman added. The gunmen sailed into the Bohol town of Inabanga on Monday, going upriver toward a remote section of the island aboard three fast boats, Inabanga police officer Edwin Melicor told AFP by telephone.

"Residents told us the gunmen could have been Muslims because they were aboard boats that are used only in Mindanao," Melicor said, referring to a Muslim-populated southern area. A clash broke out as police went to investigate early Tuesday, Melicor added. Over the past year the Abu Sayyaf has been expanding its activities, boarding commercial and fishing vessels off their southern island stronghold of Jolo, near Malaysia, and abducting dozens of foreign crew members.

They beheaded a German tourist earlier this year and two Canadian tourists last year, all three of them having been seized at sea.

Russia and Iran warn Trump they will retaliate militarily against the US if it crosses their 'red line' again with attacks on Assad in Syria

Russian and Iranian forces last night warned Donald Trump they would retaliate with military action if he launched more airstrikes on Syria. In an ominous threat raising the prospect of war, they said the US President had crossed a 'red line' with his surprise missile bombardment on Bashar al-Assad's forces. 'From now on we will respond with force to any breach of red lines and America knows our ability to respond well,' the military chiefs said in a joint statement with Hezbollah. The Russian Embassy in London last night suggested there could be 'real war' if Moscow is presented with an ultimatum over Syria. But Boris Johnson will today lead a push for Russia to face tough new sanctions unless it withdraws its support for Assad. It comes after President Trump (left inset) ordered airstrikes (pictured top right) on a Syrian airbase in the first direct attack by the US against Assad on Friday morning.

 

But Boris Johnson will today lead a push for Russia to face tough new sanctions unless it withdraws its support for Assad.

At a G7 meeting in Italy, the Foreign Secretary will call for Moscow to be threatened with isolation from the international community and a raft of economic punishments.

On a day of escalating tensions yesterday:

  • The Kremlin mocked Britain for having ‘no real influence on the course of international affairs’ after Mr Johnson cancelled a planned trip to Moscow;
  • Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said Russia was responsible for ‘every civilian death’ in Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people;
  • America warned Moscow it faces a ‘relationship of competition and potential conflict’ unless it stops supporting Assad’s ‘murderous regime’;
  • The White House told North Korea it should take US missile strikes against Syria as a warning that America is prepared to take military action against countries which break international agreements.
