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.
I know it's Foxnews and that makes some of you spew. but it's an AP story!
I think this idea is AWFUL! All they have are hypothosis' (sp?) on how this would turn out! What do ya'll think of this idea?

I think it's hysterical. I would hope they aren't serious. But with this administration, I never know what to expect, except for the unexpected. Oh gawd, that probably means it is true. Okay, not so funny anymore. :o(

So, in essence, they are saying that in the long run, pollution actually may be our savior? I really don't know where to go with this. Could it be possible that all of the green initiatives may have progressed climate change? If so, who do we hold responsible for green initiatives and what will be their retribution?

No joke! Read the article. Other countries are looking into this as well! I was wondering if I was the only person who thought this was nutty.
