"The Obama White House spews climate hysteria"

The Washington Times has this editorial. I think that it has a lot of interesting information.

Not even the sky is the limit to crackpot environmental theories these days. On Wednesday, presidential science adviser John P. Holdren told the Associated Press that it might be necessary to blow pollution into the atmosphere to shield the sun's rays and stave off global warming. His hyperbole is even scarier than his science. According to Mr. Holdren, the planet is in so much trouble that it is like a "car with bad brakes driving toward a cliff in the fog." Not only is the world at a "tipping point," but we also face "really intolerable consequences" if drastic action isn't taken immediately.

The hysterics could be humorous if so much were not at stake. Mr. Holdren's humble recommendation is to try to engineer the world's climate. One idea is to manufacture a giant artificial volcano big enough to envelope the world with its ash cloud. Behind all this weird science are government plans that will cost billions of dollars. Already, President Obama has proposed a radical cap to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 80 percent, which White House staffers have estimated could cost the economy as much as $2 trillion over the next eight years alone.

Mr. Holdren is a habitual harbinger of doom, . . . .

I have a idea for Mr. Holden. Why not go to ACME Products and buy a "atmospheric pollution pump" and give this idea a test? You do know ACME Products, don't you? They make the products for Wile E. Coyote.

I feel as if I'm in some kind of a weird, hallucinatory nightmare from which I cannot awaken; wondering if it's scripted by Monty Python or Stephen King.

Perhaps they take turns.

Ideology vs. actual science. Fools cannot be convinced, simply because they lack an open mind...
