Obama May Block Sun's Rays to End Global Warming

FOX News


The president's new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth's air.

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.

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

Holdren outlined several "tipping points" involving global warming that 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.
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."

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.

Holdren, a 65-year-old physicist, is far from alone in taking geoengineering more seriously.

The National Academy of Science is making climate tinkering the subject of its first workshop in its new multidiscipline climate challenges program.

The British parliament has also discussed the idea.

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

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

But Holdren noted that shooting particles into the air — making an artificial volcano as one Nobel laureate has suggested — could have grave side effects and would not completely solve all the problems from soaring greenhouse gas emissions.

So such actions could not be taken lightly, he said.

Still, "we might get desperate enough to want to use it," he added.

Another geoengineering option he mentioned was the use of so-called artificial trees to suck carbon dioxide — the chief human-caused greenhouse gas — out of the air and store it.

At first that seemed prohibitively expensive, but a re-examination of the approach shows it might be less costly, he said.

Some things about Holdren: This guy is one sick person! ...........

In 1969 Holdren wrote that it was imperative “to convince society and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demanding, and all-consuming population growth.” That same year, he and professor of population studies Paul Ehrlich jointly predicted: “If … population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.”

In 1971 Holdren and Ehrlich warned that “some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century.”

Viewing capitalism as an economic system that is inherently harmful to the natural environment, Holdren and Ehrlich in 1973 called for “a massive campaign … to de-develop the United States” and other Western nations in order to conserve energy and facilitate growth in underdeveloped countries. “De-development,” they said, “means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” “By de-development,” they elaborated, “we mean lower per-capita energy consumption, fewer gadgets, and the abolition of planned obsolescence.”

In 1986 Holdren predicted that “carbon dioxide-induced famines could kill as many as a billion people before the year 2020.”

On December 20, 2008, President-elect Barack Obama named Holdren as his choice to be Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Good Lord, what an idiot. These idiots are going to cause some kind of catastrophe, which is going to make so-called global warming look like a walk in the park.

'Obama looking at cooling air to fight global warming'

Never underestimate the power of large numbers of stupid people. This proves that Albert Einstein was again, 100% correct......"The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits".

This below is EXCELLENT.

Founder of The Weather Channel, John Coleman, concerning Global Warming:

It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create in allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.
Environmental extremists, notable politicians among them, then teamed up with movie, media and other liberal, environmentalist journalists to create this wild “scientific” scenario of the civilization threatening environmental consequences from Global Warming unless we adhere to their radical agenda. Now their ridiculous manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the Governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmental conscientious citizens. Only one reporter at ABC has been allowed to counter the Global Warming frenzy with one 15 minutes documentary segment.
I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party. However, Global Warming, ie Climate Change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you “believe in.” It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you Global Warming is a non-event, a manufactured crisis and a total scam. I say this knowing you probably won’t believe a me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it.
I have read dozens of scientific papers. I have talked with numerous scientists. I have studied. I have thought about it. I know I am correct. There is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril. I am incensed by the incredible media glamour, the politically correct silliness and rude dismissal of counter arguments by the high priest of Global Warming.
In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway. I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend.

......Thank you Lynn for sending this to me.

The planned obselescence is a fancy word for killing off the 'old' people who have out lived there usefulness and are now living off the 'system'. These pseudo scientist, are fringe elements who could never break into the real world. So they made up there own little world that they could control.

Now that they have somebody to listen to them, i.e., nitwit brain obama, they think they are now in position to put their theories to work. They have been trying to Devolve our industrial base for years and have come close to shutting it down. They are in charge, now, and of course there is no counter argument against them. It is always difficult to argue with an idiot, but now the idiot has their head idiot in charge so they just plod along in their destructive ways to undermine the supporting pins that have held this country up.

Coleman is right. For years Algore, was some putz from Tennessee who nobody took seriously. He was another joe biden. As vice President to the most corrupt President in history, he still made no Headlines. Lost the election in '00 and disappeared for awhile then Suddenly emerged all self recreated as a Global Warming expert. After the Nobel Prize, he believed he had become invincable. Trouble is all of his theories are full of holes but you are not allowed to question thme, for he knows it all. It would be prudent to at least look at his left handed theories and question them before we go bankrupt trying to fix something that is not broken.

But then again this isn't about Climate change it is all about creating a third world country out of the greatest nation ever.

The Gathering of Dangerous Idiots is an event taking place right now in Wash. DC. Anti American and anti capitalist in nature these idiots haveplanned for decades to dismantle the successful American system. They want to turn it into a socialist paradise. They have found what they believe to be an excellent tool in that endeavor, the climate.

Judging from what I have seen and read they are already partly successful. All over the tv and in magazines I see reference to global warming.

Wheather the climate change advocates win or common sense prevails I don't know. I kind of doubt this scam/scheme is going away soon.

Mark, this all scares me and Obama's
health plan too. I would hate to be a
throw away person and just told to go
die off some place out of the way.

Your right Mark that is just what it
is about,not about the climate that is
just a cover for their agenda.

Tom, thanks for the information. I agree I
don't think this craziness is going to stop
soon if at all. Plus all the people making
a lot of money off this scam too.
