Plans to Cool Planet Heat Up Geo-Engineering Debate
by Margaret Munro

Billionaire Bill Gates is funding experiments to explore using "artificial" clouds to cool the planet.

"Bill Gates and his cloud-wrenching cronies have no right to unilaterally change our seas and skies," says Jim Thomas, of the Montreal-based ETC Group, that is part of an international coalition calling for a moratorium on geoengineering experiments.

"Bill Gates and his cloud-wrenching cronies have no right to unilaterally change our seas and skies," says Jim Thomas, of the Montreal-based ETC Group, that is part of an international coalition calling for a moratorium on geoengineering experiments.

Gates, the world's richest man, has given $4.5 million to climate researcher David Keith, of the University of Calgary, and Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution for Science, to fund research on planet-cooling ideas. Keith is on vacation and could not be reached for comment.
