Lsherm: They kind of like the fact the problem is hard to solve because it gives you a lever to say we have to make these deep reforms in consumer culture, which I personally would like to see," said Keith.

Hey, a problem solved is a problem solved. And at the end of the day, if you can't push through changes in consumer culture that haven't ever succeeded in all of human history, then maybe alternative solutions aren't a bad direction to go in. It doesn't necessarily have to be re-freezing the arctic, as long as we come up with an alternative energy source that will continue to meet our ever-growing demand, or maybe a combination of the two.

It's years in the future regardless. But we've been re-routing water for millennia, so it's not that far a jump to re-routing solar radiation. It's been proposed for years, but we're always getting closer to actually being able to do it. The minute someone comes up with a super cheap manner of doing it, someone is going to say "hold my beer and watch this."



That usually works out well.

Man made climate change is false. It is a taxing scheme that will destroy jobs in the US while giving developing countries like China a pass.

That humans are arrogant, self absorbed and aggrandizing asshats?

"Mankind is changing the environment and something must be done to preserve it".

(A few threads later)

"Mankind should not be allowed to change the environment in the name of preservation".

/checks environmentalist decoder ring for hidden message.

Not so fast, Canada. Your sinister plot to freeze the earth south of you will not succeed. You are used to the frigid temperatures and would rule the planet; politeness and hockey would become rampant. America will stop your plans because while we can be manipulated, we absolutely refuse to learn French.

The question that needs to be asked now is, When we pull this stunt and send the Earth into a snowball, will it be safe to start nuking the ice caps to melt them?

I read "could Febreze arctic."

I was slightly more upset about Febrezing than freezing. Not that I have anything against a lovely smelling laundry alternative...

Scientists have long theorized that injecting reflective particles of some kind into the high atmosphere


This is a terrible idea. The last time we tried it, we ended up with one of the worst movies ever made.

Wolf_Blitzer: DesertDemonWY: RandomRandom: /Given that sea levels are not only rising, but the rate of sea level increase is itself rising, I give it 20 years. Ready the high-altitude drone-dusters.

No, it isn't.

Am I missing the part where both graphs aren't showing rising sea levels?


No but you seem to be blind to the fact that it isn't accelerating as was claimed.

They can't even accurately predict the weather a few hours from now yet they think they somehow understand what would happen if they manipulated the climate of the entire planet.

Usually not. However, I don't think the US will be jumping the gun on this one. I could see China or Russia doing it, though.
