Saving the Earth Requires Billions of Tons of Sulfuric Acid

Saving the Earth Requires Billions of Tons of Sulfuric Acid When a volcano goes off, it ejects a ridiculous amount of sulfur and other particulates into the atmosphere.Anyway, that said, the researchers concluded that it might be possible to use sulfur dioxide to help unfuck the planet.
