We Only Have 10 Years Left To Save The Planet Or Something

And Warmists have ideas!

10 years to save planet Earth: Here are 6 imaginative climate change solutions

A giant parasol that hovers high in orbit to block the sun. Refreezing the melting poles by making submarine-sized ice cubes. Pumping extra carbon dioxide deep underground for indefinite storage. Spraying sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere to form clouds to artificially cool the Earth.

As global warming becomes direr – and nations dither about decreasing emissions – could these controversial technological fixes known as geoengineering buy us time to move away from burning fossil fuels?

Scientists say that transition needs to be well underway in the next 20 years. While geoengineering isn’t a replacement for moving to a carbon-neutral economy, it’s increasingly been seen as something we need to explore as a stopgap.

We don’t have much time, said Hugh Hunt, an engineering professor at Cambridge University in England, where he directs the Center for Climate Repair.

He compares geoengineering to the often harsh and sometimes dangerous chemotherapy used to treat cancer.

“I’m no more pro-geoengineering than someone working on chemotherapy is pro-chemotherapy. But if someone has cancer, you try chemotherapy,” he said.

And the ideas?

  • Sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere
  • Creating clouds with sulfur
  • Dump iron shavings into the ocean
  • A giant sunshade orbiting the Earth
  • Refreeze the polar ice caps
  • Wrap glaciers in thermal blankets

Anyhow, when Doom fails to arrive in 10 years, does this mean we won’t have to see and hear stories on climate doom?

    Epoch Times Video – 10 Reasons Why Blacks Should Leave the Democratic Party by Larry Elder

    “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from US Consulate at Bergen Norway.

    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate condition and hitherto unheard-of temperature in the Arctic zone.
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many point well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.”

    This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported and published in The Washington Post.
    “Within a few years”? Now we’re up to ten years. Yeah!

    Apparently thinking people were not gullible enough to swallow this back then either.

    The Bluegrass State is hardly considered the Deep South, but this entire week, in the mid sixties, some days cloudy and some sunny, the last week of December, is hardly something to make me dislike global warming climate change!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Same here in MO, reaching 70F, just under the record high. Probably not related to global warming which is a Communist hoax to create a One World government.

        A rare lapse of truth for Bolshevik Bunny.

        Actually, not every Christmas is white (or cold) for a lot of places.

        Especially Pulaski TN, birthplace of the Ku Klux Klan, where Christmases are warm, but always white.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Do you make an annual pilgrimage there, a hajj, so to speak? Stop and pay homage to Nathan Bedford Forrest on the way, maybe visit Fort Pillow?

          More cognitive dissonance amongst Cons – why do you insist on calling all confederate traitors and KKK founders Democrats, yet now honor the traitors, racists and KKK founders as heroes worthy of respect, even erecting statues and naming parks after them. It’s almost as if Dems and Repubs switched ideologies.

          • formwiz says:

            Blah, blah, Uncle Saul rides again.

            Make fun of Baghdadi Bunny’s attempt at sarcasm and he tries all the old tropes.

            You know your white massas on the East Coast think negroes are incapable of taking care of themselves without the benevolent patriarchy of the Left.

            The Demos have the same ideology they did in 1860.

            Jeff,
            Don’t know a thing about the War of Northern Aggression I see. Did you know that thousands of blacks mourned when Forrest died? And that his memorial was supported by them as well.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        In Australia they’ve had average highs in the high 100s, coupled with severe drought, and uncontrollable bushfires. Yikes.

        • formwiz says:

          It’s summer down there, idiot.

          Southern Hemisphere and all that.

          I guess you’re as ignorant of geography as you are of science.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          I feel sorry for those folks having bad WEATHER, but there is no evidence of climate change. And how would a tax help? After all, the Australians already pay climate taxes.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            But commenter Kye claims the climate is changing – in fact that it’s warming, and “skeptics” have always known that. What do you think?

            Do you deny that the Earth is in period of warming?

            You may be confused about the nature of CO2 emissions. Because of mixing in the atmosphere, CO2 emissions are a global, not local problem. Five nations/unions contribute over nearly 2/3rds of the total emissions, China, US, EU, Russia, India – Australia is not in the top ten (contributes about 1% of total). So a local tax in Australia, while it might reduce fossil fuel consumption down-under wouldn’t have much of an effect on global warming, would it?

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            You have plainly stated that if the U.S. is not destroyed, then the world ends in 10 years. Oh, and China and India produce far more pollutants than the US, yet you don’t push to destroy them. If course we are well aware that your religion has little to do with science.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            davey,

            You know you’re lying again when you say I’ve stated that if the U.S. is not destroyed, then the world ends in 10 years.

            But right wing commenters here lie constantly so it’s no surprise

            China produces about twice the CO2 as the US. India less than half the US.

            You assume that a carbon tax will “destroy” economies and that only the US should participate.

            Religions require belief in the supernatural, afterlife, miracles, magical being etc.

            Do you understand that the Earth is warming? Kye says all “skeptics” accept that the world is warming.

  5. formwiz says:

    No, the earth is not warming. And I’ll bet Kye says nothing of the kind.

    And, basically, you want the US destroyed as a federal republic to institute the changes only Communism would give you.

    You assume that a carbon tax will “destroy” economies and that only the US should participate.

    We’ve gone from 20% of the world’s economy top 25% in just 3 years while most of the rest of the world has Mississippi’s.

    So the US shouldn’t participate.

    Religions require belief in the supernatural, afterlife, miracles, magical being etc.

    So do extreme political ideologies.

    But right wing commenters here lie constantly so it’s no surprise

    No, we provide facts. You lie.

  6. Kye says:

    I don’t think Kye would say say “ALL skeptics accept that the world is warming”, but if he did he meant “Most skeptics” because Kye rarely ever says “All” or “Every” he defers to “most” and “many”. But thanks for playing.

  7. formwiz says:

    The Man Who’s always right misses the point, as always.

    No, I just destroyed yours.

    If there was one.

    And showed your ignorance of another subject.

  8. formwiz says:

    But commenter Kye claims the climate is changing – in fact that it’s warming, and “skeptics” have always known that. What do you think?

    Climate changes every day. It’s called seasons.

    Do you deny that the Earth is in period of warming?

    Of course, winter just started.

    You may be confused about the nature of CO2 emissions. Because of mixing in the atmosphere, CO2 emissions are a global, not local problem. Five nations/unions contribute over nearly 2/3rds of the total emissions, China, US, EU, Russia, India – Australia is not in the top ten (contributes about 1% of total). So a local tax in Australia, while it might reduce fossil fuel consumption down-under wouldn’t have much of an effect on global warming, would it?

    Well, first, the EU is not a nation.

    Second, CO2 is a heavy gas, stays close to the earth and is consumed in photosynthesis. So you concede you want a one-world goverrnment for this carbon tax.

    And who is always hot for one-world government?

    The Commies!

    Nice of you to admit what we’ve been saying all along.
