U.S. scientist looks to engineering climate

This just popped up on the news feed, and it demands a look.

Tinkering with Earth’s climate to chill runaway global warming — a radical idea once dismissed out of hand — is being discussed by the White House as a potential emergency option, the president’s new science adviser said Wednesday.

That’s because global warming is happening so rapidly, John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month.

One option raised by Holdren and proposed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays.

I have never resorted to using the right-wing word “moonbat” to describe a liberal espousing crazed ideas. I guess I just instinctively knew that someday someone would have an idea so ridiculous as to earn the label outright.

At what point will humans realize that every single action they take to cure one perceived ill creates another? Shooting pollution into space? Man, give him a one way ticket instead. A moonbat like Holdren would surely be comfortable there.
