Somebody explain this to me.
The UK’s Royal Society is to investigate whether ambitious engineering schemes could reduce the impact of global warming.
Several “geo-engineering” schemes have been proposed including putting mirrors into space and iron filings in oceans.
The society says these must be properly assessed – however fantastical.
But environmental groups warn that technological solutions should not divert attention away from reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses.
No, everything must be done, even if it involves the extraction of trillions of pounds of wealth from us commoners, to fight global warming, as the article states. I mean, after all these years of propaganda, calling it fighting climate change sounds fucking idiotic. Like humans can control the planets’ climate. No, it’s global warming. Maybe someone should send them these articles…

It took me about one minute to pull all of those links up. One fucking minute. I guess the climate change/ carbon tax industry is too big a cash cow to just let go. I mean, you can’t monopolise the ‘solution’ when people don’t believe there is a ‘problem’ to solve.
Although most don’t believe the official theory (where have I heard that before).
