There are alternative views on this sulphur protocol:
Luongo: Jumping The Global Warming Shark
… dimming the sun by dispersing sulfate particles into the
atmosphere to reflect and absorb some of the energy coming from it
to slow the rate of global warming.
I would hope, at the very least, they are thinking of something
thoroughly inert like barium sulfate, but they aren’t. They are
talking about injecting SO2 into the atmosphere. Another word for
SO2 is SMOG. This is the very compound we have been regulating
power plants to not emit.
… The biggest impediment to this plan the researchers conclude?
It’s not cost, because by their calculations it would be cheaper
than any other ‘solution.’ It’s that it wouldn’t be able to be
kept secret from the people they were poisoning.
I. shit. you. not.

They think that they've found themselves one hell of a problem, but a problem which would be threatened, like garlic or a silver bullet, or a gold cross, to a vampire.
