What Climate Worry?
Well it's always interesting when climate deniers all of the sudden scurry up onto the soapbox to become promoters of climate solutions, right? When they stop even doubting the anthropogenic causes and turn coats 180 degrees. Always interesting... and even more so when its from the AEI, the American Enterprise Institute (which houses of course Fred "2nd hand smoke does not harm the baby" Singer, as well as the bloodthirsty and obsequious Michael "Nuke 'em All" Ledeen... but that is in fact what just happened today (maybe it has something to do with Exxon no longer funding climate skeptics). In a recently released "opinion piece" Joel Schwartz writes that scientist of course are dead set against having a "warmer but richer" planet, and also that the only real way to deal with climate change (now that it is real), is to fill the atmosphere with sulfur and other particulate (just like chemtrails.... but real?). Geoengineering is our only way out he says, and those damn scientists! They just don't seem to get that. Schwartz does, of course, because he's not a scientist (he does have an MS in planetary Sciences, but he spent much more time with the RAND Corporation (nice) and working for the Orwellian "Coalition for Clean Air" (which managed to set back clean air regulations across Florida). Trust me, anything this guy is going to promote is a danger to every living thing.
