It's important to keep a large portion of the earth uninhabitable. Spare no expense.

"So it goes"

Came here for ice-9, leaving satisfied.

I just read that book for the first time right after re-reading Chrichton's "State of Fear" and let me tell you I am flat out scared when I think of what all these gullible global warming cultist might do to our planet just to try and force anyone who dares question them to believe what they do whether it is factual or not. Gw has not been proven or disproven but what has been is that most supposed environmental groups are corrupt and self-serving. They only really care about promoting their own job security and ensuring a steady flow of grant money and donations from the sheeple just like all you smarmy farkers that post insults and demeaning statements towards anyone that shows a hint of healthy skepticism towards what you blindly believe is fact . I am aware I am hypocrite because I call you "cultists" but it has always been my way to use a bullies' own tacticts against him/her.

I wish you would all open your eyes even just a little to the fact that there is no such thing as altruism as Heinlein said, men are inherently corrupt and when faced with facts that prove he is wrong a good man, a wise man, an intelligent man questions what he believes. He always allows for the possibility that he may be wrong and prepares his mind to accept change. He does not close it to a differing view and switch into damage control mode to protect his possibly erroneous beliefs.

vodka: whatcouldpossiblygowrong

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.

This. If they actually believe that CO2 could cause runaway warming, then this action would cause runaway cooling and kill us all.

Bit'O'Gristle: Scientists have long theorized that injecting reflective particles of some kind into the high atmosphere could reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth's surface and compensate for the greenhouse effect. High CO2 levels would continue to trap heat, but with less energy coming in to begin with, temperatures on the surface would go down.

Hmmm...what kind of particles are we talking about here....and how do you propose to keep them airborne? Pesky gravity and all. If you just keep doing it...(and i can't imagine you could do it on a scale to make a difference) wont the particles just float to the ground everywhere? Covering the seas and destroying the phytoplankton, thus killing off oxygen to the rest of the planet??


Just put a giant beach umbrella in space. Problem solved. I'm going to tea.

Hell, let's see what George Carlin has to say...
