Let’s hope the good folks in Fargo, Cleveland and Denver are enjoying their winter because the Obama administration announced today that in order to combat global warming it is developing plans to make the world colder.
President Obama’s new science adviser John Holdren told the Associated Press today that one of the options being discussed is shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said, “It’s got to be looked at. We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.”
He went on to say he has raised his thoughts on tinkering with the climate in administration discussions.
“Mr. Wizard” did not say whether President Obama also thought tinkering with the climate was a fabulous idea or not.
Holdren said if polluting the atmosphere…wait a minute! Didn’t we just spend hundreds of billions of dollars and thirty or so years to get rid of pollution in the atmosphere? Anyway, Holdren said if polluting the atmosphere doesn’t work, they’re going to cover the planet with artificial trees to suck carbon dioxide out of the air and store it somewhere.
Just curious, but what happens if the Obama administration re-pollutes the atmosphere, sucks all the carbon dioxide out of the air and the next thing you know we’re headed into a new ice age with glaciers advancing on Fargo, Cleveland and Denver? What then Mr. Science Guy?
And I thought the guy who claimed he could turn lead into gold was crazy.
