We have 'sun dimming' as a natural process right now, no need to further 'dim' the sun.

Here's cycle 24 in comparison with the lowest cycles recorded.

If you think 'sun dimming' will fix global warming, well the 'fix' is in.

Fun Facts, no alarmist has bothered to answer my simple question yet, so do you believe it would be a good thing if Earth were to cool by the 0.7 - 0.8º C it has warmed in the last 160 years?

No, I do not think we would be better off cold than warm.

You have read my posts often enough to know that I am expecting a cooling period as a result of solar activity. I am not happy about the cooling period as I believe that our populations, human and animal, are negatively impacted by the cold.

The cooling period is not expected to produce anything like the LIA at this time, but even going back .7*C is moving in the wrong direction.

Roger that, you may have noticed that I'm of the same opinion.

So far, that remains undisputed by anyone, yet alarmists are fearful of any further increase, claiming it will be catastrophic.
So far, the increase has done more good than harm, alarmists say otherwise, naturally, probably because they're unable to come to terms with any change.

Ouch, that doesn't look very promising, let's hope that it doesn't affect GW.

"Research indicates that stratospheric geoengineering could, by compensating for increased greenhouse gas concentrations, reduce summer monsoon rainfall in Asia and Africa, potentially threatening the food supply for billions of people."

In other words, don't play with something that isn't well understood if there's the slightest chance it could make things worse.
