Are you serious?
Building off of the Czar’s recent post on Global Warming, it seems that POTUS Obama’s science advisor thinks we should entertain the notion of geoengineering to help the “runaway global warming” problem.
John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.
Deep breath. First, I’m not sure where he’s seeing this “runaway” global warming? There is no factual data to support this theory. The “hockey stick” data has been proven incorrect (poor mathematics) and the previous claim that 1998 was the warmest year on record is no longer true (it’s actually 1934). And even if we suspend rational thought and scientific processes for a moment, by what token do people believe that humans have enough knowledge to geoengineer the earth’s climate without causing damage? We still fail to accurately predict the following day’s weather at times, let alone several days out – but we know that we should cool the earth’s atmosphere and oceans? We still cannot accurately predict when and where clouds will form. Water vapor and the solar activity play such an integral part in our climate and human have not yet been able to accurately model or confirm any theories about it. We’ve discussed this before with regards to cosmic radiation and the ozone layer as well as solar activity and weather patterns.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
