In what sounds very much like the plot to a movie, the Obama Administration’s “science advisor” has decided to stop Global Warming by polluting the air.
One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.
“It’s got to be looked at,” he said. “We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.”
Wait. Did he just say they would intentionally pollute the Earth’s atmosphere if need be??
First thought that popped in my head when I heard this –
Excuse me? Global warming? Oh yea, that’s why it’s in the freaking 30’s & 40’s here on the southern East Coast – in APRIL! Geez… If this is “global warming” then it’s not warm enough yet. I want spring & summer!
Second thought –
Wasn’t this the plot to a movie? Wasn’t it something like Matrix 3 where it was discovered that humans had tried to block the sun to turn off the solar-powered machines?
Third thought –
Wait, did he just say they would be purposefully polluting the Earth’s atmosphere? So…. SUVs and aerosol cans can’t be all that bad then, huh?
Fourth thought –
Just who the hell do we think we are? Block the sun? Seriously?
Fifth thought –
What happens when another country says, “NO! We don’t want this!” Are we so arrogant that we would say “we don’t care what you think, we know what’s best, so screw you.” Sadly, I think the answer to that is, yes, we are the arrogant.
Ugh. Hope-n-Change ya’ll!
