    Global Warming, lines are drawn , you must choose.

    The global warming nut cases are drawing up plans for geo-engineering to counter-act what they consider to be man made damage.

    one idea is to shoot sulfur into the upper atmosphere to create what they think is going to be a shield from the sun.

    another idea is to set mirrors in space to deflect 2% of the sun's rays.

    (there is intricate politics going on as some of these ideas are being set up as a "conservative" approach to solve Global Warming, something they officially don't believe in.
    i guess when the project turns into a disaster they're going to say the conservatives did it.)


    ironic that the global warming people are going to destroy the planet by telling people they are fixing it.

    we need a total change in politics to tell these people to go get a real job

    ooh really, exactly who is going to pay for this? America is nearly broke, the government is sunk is scandal and NASA isn't launching any rockets~~~There is NO money

    Europe is in just as bad a shape as we are.

    and not-for-nothing---but how much sulfur is going to be needed to "shield" earth? These ideas are just as stupid as the guys thinking of them.

    These "scientists" should be put in an institution, they're a danger to society

    Which people are these? Heck there are wingnuts in every bunch, shoot, some think the earth is just one big petrochemical factory and that it will always replenish itself and we will never run out of oil. Why complain about people who's ideas will never go anywhere? Well, other than it amuses us.

    Because unfortunately some of the nutjobs wind up trying their ideas and end up making things worse!

    Interesting idea. Volcanic eruptions have already confirmed the effectiveness on reducing global temperatures. Seems a promising path to help correct man-made damage.


    another idea is to set mirrors in space to deflect 2% of the sun's rays.
    Mimicing another natural effect. Lowering albedo with readily available technology.

    No doubt politics will be the major drag on such solutions.

    Global warming something the don't officially believe in? From what brain-dead source did you harvest this silly idea?

    Well, most disasters spring from conservative minds.

    You shouldn't worry. By the time these proposals are tested, approved and implemented, you will have already croaked off due to global warming induced drought, severe weather patterns, crop failures or lack of water.

    A more effective approach would be to remedy the appallingly deficient science knowledge displayed by far too many of our citizens.

    Gun nuts and the NRA are flush with cash. Perhaps a nominal fee on weapons, ammo and accessories would provide more than enough funding for these proposals.

    IMO this is the answer to those wingnuts... no $$$ means no programs.

    I (GA) have been saying this for decades; The solution to our 'govt out of control' mess in the USA (well the world) is for the world to go broke for around a decade or so (yeah, 2 decades might be better). The result would be govts could NOT deficit spend... leading to folks learning there is NO free lunch. Guess what would happen... folks would learn to either work or starve... a principle as old as mankind (See Genesis Ch 3 in the Bible... )

    Perhaps a tax on liberals instead. Maybe if it was their money for a change they might be a little more conservative with it (pun intended).

    Kind of a "Global Economic Nuclear Winter" eh?

    Macro-Economics is not really your best subject is it?

    Oh but it is their money. You might want to investigate Blue vs. Red state dependence on federal money

    So you have something to point to?

    Good idea... lest see if we can figure out a viable way to tax liberals....

    Maybe we can start with a buck every time a lib posts a comment that does not have a solution for an issue...

    OTOH 'ignore' is the best feature of this forum... wish there was a way to marginalize liberals in society with an 'ignore' feature.
