I think the worst one for me... besides the huge face plant I did in '64 (That wasn't my fault though. Some girl let her bike go into mine. I went into the pavement hard. Had to have one of my permanent front teeth removed. )
The biggest one was in '70 (I was in high school at the time. Still on my original, trusty Schwinn Sting Ray from '63.)
We had all the guys in the neighborhood challenging each other to different contest. One particular evening... the contest was to see who could ride the longest wheelie without peddling. What could go wrong? Well... I was dominating. BUT I just had to go a bit further. This involved pedaling as fast as you could for a big top speed. Then pulling the front tire up and riding it as long as you could. I ended up going too far back
I was barefoot, of course. But my knees took the brunt of the fall.  They both were a bloody mess.
My mom gave me a long lecture after that one.

My Sting Ray.
I've since got the correct front tire for it.

Well... I didn't need no stinkin' Wham-O Wheelie bar.
I was the wheelie king of the neighborhood.
With no shoes or helmet.

My hero when I was growing up is in this advertisement.

I suppose that you have never heard of geoengineering and deliberate atmospheric aerosol injection.

Google the terms and poke around.  To think that it has not been experimented with already is naive.

Here's something to start with ...
How China Uses Geoengineering to Pursue a Hybrid Warfare Strategy

Geoengineering refers to the large-scale manipulation of a specific process central to controlling and channeling the earth’s resources, such as those of the oceans, rivers, soil, and atmosphere. These techniques are undergoing rapid development primarily to achieve sustainable development in the fields of agriculture, water resource management, energy generation, navigation, connectivity, and climate change mitigation. Unfortunately, the use of these geoengineering techniques is not limited to such noble objectives; they can also be harnessed to dominate or subjugate other countries in a certain region.

China has adopted a strategy of hybrid warfare against countries that it considers hostile or potentially hostile. Geoengineering has the potential to become a game-changing tool for Beijing’s implementation of a hybrid warfare strategy, especially in China’s neighborhood. Various geoengineering techniques could amplify China’s grey zone capabilities in a given theater and shape its future strategy in regional geopolitics. There are three main geoengineering techniques that have bolstered China’s or hybrid warfare capabilities.

Weather Modification

According to a statement from China’s State Council, the country is committed to bringing about 5.5 million square kilometers of its land area under its weather modification program by 2025.

.
Much of this involves the process of “cloud seeding.” China claims to have developed this technology to increase agricultural productivity and prevent natural disasters such as droughts and floods. However, the impact of cloud seeding can be seen beyond China’s borders, as it may disrupt the normal monsoon in neighboring countries such as India, Myanmar, Vietnam, etc. This would have an adverse impact on the agriculture in these countries, rising potentially to a form of “rain stealing.”

Weather medication may also be used to sabotage troop movements and logistics operations in border regions by artificially altering the rainy conditions, which would slow down the tactical movement of the adversary on a real-time basis.

Would it not be reasonable to assume that for China to have their goal reached by 2025, they have doing this for a very long time.  And to think that China is the only country doing this ?  Please.

Edit:  Here's some more, from CBS News, 2018

Controversial spraying method aims to curb global warming

A fleet of 100 planes making 4,000 worldwide missions per year could help save the world from climate change. Also, it may be relatively cheap. That's the conclusion of a new peer-reviewed study in Environmental Research Letters.
...

Dr. Gernot Wagner from Harvard University is an author of the paper. He said their study shows this type of geoengineering "... would be technically possible strictly from an engineering perspective. It would also be remarkably inexpensive, at an average of around $2 to 2.5 billion per year over the first 15 years."

But to reach that point, the study said an entirely new aircraft needs to be developed. Partly because missions would need to be conducted at nearly double the cruising altitude of commercial airplanes. The study's co-author, Wake Smith explained, "No existing aircraft has the combination of altitude and payload capabilities required."

Just because the high altitude equipment has not been developed doesn't mean that this has not already been attempted at lower altitudes would be reasonable to conclude, imho. Especially considering how inexpensive it is to do. But feel free to believe that this is not real nor already happening and not happening before this article was written.

Your whole argument regarding global warming is that humans are the primary culprit and that natural cycles of nature have very little, if any affect.

So much for who is actually paying attention to science.

I'll now wait for the flogging and Richard's canned copy and paste responses for "Deniers."


You aren’t paying any attention to science. Apparently “you” are presenting yourself as the authority. 
 
No offense, but I think I will listen to scientists over you.
