This Global Warming Fix Stinks (article)

Wired News reports: "Scientists agree that the planet is getting warmer because excess carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere acts like a pane of glass, trapping heat from solar radiation. Using less electricity and driving less are often recommended by climatologists to reduce carbon emissions. ... Paul Crutzen, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Germany, has a very different idea: He recommends injecting massive amounts of sulfur into the upper atmosphere so less sun will penetrate it."

The news and the weather have made us all to aware that the climate on our planet could be changing because of man made pollution and/or natural circumstances. Although the idea of injecting massive amounts of sulfur into the upper atmosphere, seems like a dangerous idea to me.

I am no expert in the field, but as the old adage goes, what goes up must come down. What type of effect will all that sulfur have on us and the environment.
