Obama to save the planet

with Geoengineering:

WASHINGTON – 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."
You can't make this stuff up. The lunatics are now officially in charge of the asylum - (no disrespect to lunatics intended).

The US EPA is en route to declaring CO2, a naturally-occurring trace gas essential to life, a pollutant.

John Holdren, chief "science" advisor in the US, is en route to declaring that pollutants (in the form of aerosols and particulates) are now essential to combat warming.

Nothing odd about this, is there? Fortunately all those unregulated new coal plants in China will provide us with a cheap source of particulates.
