Obama Considering Geoengineering the Climate

With President Obama's support and knowledge, there are those who are not only proceeding to re-engineer the family, re-define marriage and diminish the sanctity of life, but are now planning to possibly tinker with the Earth's climate.

The President's science advisor, John Holdren, says that global warming is so dire that they are discussing radical technologies to cool the Earth's air---by shooting pollution into the air.

I suppose China would supply the product.

Some of the extreme ideas that are being discussed are not just Holdren's personal ideas, but are being discussed in administration meetings.

The ideas are so extreme that I could hardly believe what I was reading. I found it hard to believe that people with that kind of authority were actually discussing those kinds of things, given the growing body of dissent among scientists who disagree with the global warming alarmists.

Even the CNN weather guy has doubts about global warming.

In light of what the Obama Administration has done with our financial structure and social structure over the past few weeks, perhaps it isn't so far-fetched to think that he would be blasting pollution into the air to cool the Earth one day soon.

Check this out.

One extreme option that the Obama people are considering is shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays.

Holdren said, "It's got to be looked at, we don't have the luxury of taking anything off the table."

He compared global warming, twice in his interview with the AP, to being "In a car with bad brakes, driving toward a cliff, in the fog."

He also said they were considering using so-called "artificial trees" to suck carbon dioxide out of the air and store it.

He said at first it seemed, "Prohibitively expensive," but a re-examination shows it might be less costly.

Not to worry, Mr. Holdren, you are on the Court in the" Kingdom of Trillion". It doesn't matter what it costs---yes we can.

And some thought Al Gore was off the page.

Interestingly, CNN, not known for their conservative views or clear thinking, are saying they don't think global warming is necessarily man made and their weather guy said, on the air, "You know to think we could affect weather all that much is pretty arrogant." Watch video.

I would agree. There seems to be no shortage of arrogance in this Administration.

We are called to be stewards of God's creation, and we can certainly do better than we have done.

It would seem, however, that tinkering with the idea of re-engineering the world's climate might be a little beyond the concept of stewardship.
