Obama, Global Warming, Space Gun

So What happens IF Obama is successful?

Hey folks,

I can't believe this, but anyone with an IQ over ten, understands that we have now entered a cooling cycle. GWBS is exactly that, BS. A Scam. More and more Scientists are coming out and telling us that we have not been warming since 98, and as a matter of fact, we are now in a changing cycle that is heading toward cooling temperatures.

But that does not stop Obama and Crew from pushing this immediate threat of us turning into a Great Ball of Fire, if we do nothing. So Obama and his top Science Adviser, have announced a plan to cool the planet. I have a question, and a possible prediction on all of this.

First the announcement. You really can't make this up folks. From Time.com - Obama Looking at Cooling Air to Fight Warming By AP / SETH BORENSTEIN Thursday, Apr. 09, 2009

(WASHINGTON) — 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
.

"That's because global warming is happening so rapidly," NO IT'S NOT!. It is NOT even warming at all. {Sigh}

The concept of using technology to purposely cool the climate is called geoengineering. 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.

{Laughing} Yes you read that correctly.

Using such an experimental measure is only being thought of as a last resort, Holdren said.

"It's got to be looked at," he said. "We don't have the luxury ... of ruling any approach off the table."

His concern is that the United States and other nations won't slow global warming fast enough and that several "tipping points" could be fast approaching. Once such milestones are reached, such as complete loss of summer sea ice in the Arctic, it increases chances of "really intolerable consequences," he said.


PROVE IT! He can't of course. But you are making the claim, PROVE IT.

Twice in a half-hour interview, Holdren compared global warming to being "in a car with bad brakes driving toward a cliff in the fog."

Can you say, "following a script?"

He and many experts believe that warming of a few degrees more would lead to disastrous drought conditions and food shortages in some regions, rising seas and more powerful coastal storms in others.

The temperature is NOT rising. The Sea levels are not rising. None of this is true. Where has this Idiot been? He seems to have an outdated script. Even some Global Warming "subscribers" are talking about this. They can not deny the facts.

At first, Holdren characterized the potential need to technologically tinker with the climate as just his personal view. However, he went on to say he has raised it in administration discussions.

"We're talking about all these issues in the White House," Holdren said. "There's a very vigorous process going on of discussing all the options for addressing the energy climate challenge."

Holdren said discussions include Cabinet officials and heads of sub-Cabinet level agencies, such as NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The 65-year-old physicist is far from alone in taking geoengineering seriously. The National Academy of Sciences is making it the subject of the first workshop in its new climate challenges program for policymakers, scientists and the public. The British Parliament has also discussed the idea. At an international meeting of climate scientists last month in Copenhagen, 15 talks dealt with different aspects of geoengineering.

The American Meteorological Society is crafting a policy statement that says "it is prudent to consider geoengineering's potential, to understand its limits and to avoid rash deployment."


Yeah. Let's start with this.

A- GW is BS
B- DO you really know how much Sulfur you will have to shoot up to block out the LIFE GIVING Sun? To effect all the worlds temperatures?
C- What do we do with all the acid rain?
D- What if AFTER you do this, a giant Volcano erupts? Where is the thermostat? How do we turn the temps back up?
E- OH, did I mention THERE IS NO GLOBAL WARMING?

Last week, Princeton scientist Robert Socolow told the National Academy that geoengineering should be an available option in case climate worsens dramatically.

Holdren, a 1981 winner of a MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant, outlined these possible geoengineering options:


"Genius." Yeah right.

Shooting sulfur particles (like those produced by power plants and volcanoes, for example) into the upper atmosphere, an idea that gained steam when it was proposed by Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen in 2006. It would be "basically mimicking the effect of volcanoes in screening out the incoming sunlight," Holdren said.

I thought all those Power Planets, were CAUSING Global Warming. Along with cows farting, and us BREATHING. Now it's a GOOD THING? So what's the problem?

— Creating artificial "trees" — giant towers that suck carbon dioxide out of the air and store it.

The first approach would "try to produce a cooling effect to offset the heating effect of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases," Holdren said.

But he said there could be grave side effects. Studies suggest that might include eating away a large chunk of the ozone layer above the poles and causing the Mediterranean and the Mideast to be much drier.

And those are just the predicted problems. Scientists say they worry about side effects that they don't anticipate.

While the idea could strike some people as too risky, the Obama administration could get unusual support on the idea from groups that have often denied the harm of global warming in the past.

Says who?

The conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute has its own geoengineering project, saying it could be "feasible and cost-effective." And Cato Institute scholar Jerry Taylor said Wednesday: "Very few people would rule out geoengineering on its face."

Holdren didn't spell out under what circumstances such extreme measures might ever be called for. And he emphasized they are not something to rely on.

"It would be preferable by far," he said, "to solve this problem by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases."


Yet there is already significant opposition building to the House Democratic leaders' bill aimed at achieving President Barack Obama's goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050.

Because there is no need. It's Oppressive, unconstitutional, and will bankrupt industries that we, believe it or not, REALLY can not live without.

Holdren said temperatures should be kept from rising more than 3.6 degrees. To get there, he said the U.S. and other industrial nations have to begin permanent dramatic cuts in carbon dioxide pollution by 2015, with developing countries following suit within a decade.

Those efforts are racing against three tipping points he cited: Earth could be as close as six years away from the loss of Arctic summer sea ice, he said, and that has the potential of altering the climate in unforeseen ways. Other elements that could dramatically speed up climate change include the release of frozen methane from thawing permafrost in Siberia, and more and bigger wildfires worldwide.

The trouble is that no one knows when these things are coming, he said.


I do. NOTHING! Now the prediction. Since we ARE in a global cooling cycle, they will keep up this nonsense for a little bit, then declare victory over Global Warming. Hell, they may even build their space gun, launch, shoot, whatever, some harmless dust up there, the say "Hey it Worked. Obama saved the Planet." However, since we can not be allowed to put this world at risk again, none of the regulations and programs will go away. They will stay as a precaution and people will continue to make a lot of money.
