Asteroid dust could be used to fight climatic changes on Earth

In Scotland a group of scientists have suggested a unique approach to fighting global warming on Earth. The scientists believe that the reaction towards global warming on Earth is a giant dust cloud blasted from an asteroid to act as a sunshade for Earth. According to the scientists, a project that reduced the amount of solar radiation the Earth receives by only 1.7% could offset the effects of the global increase in temperature of 3.6°F.

Scientists believe that the asteroid cloud  gravitationally anchor a giant cloud in space to block sunlight and cool the Earth.  The theory suggests that the asteroid and its massive dust cloud would be placed at Lagrange point L1, which is about four times the distance from the Earth to the moon.
