    LOL..........check this sh!t out. Even Bill Gates says it is well reasearched and compelling................global warming can likely be solved with a damn helium ballon and a few miles of garden hose!!!!


    Bret Stephens: Freaked Out Over SuperFreakonomics - WSJ.com


    Seems this is one of the definitive works out there that completely debunks the whole alarmist sh!t from the environmental jackasses. I just bought it...........this is the kind of stuff that Chris and Old Rocks dont want people seeing!!!:oops::oops::funnyface:

    Gotta love the case for letting people have the time to solve the problem rather than trying to impose a solution that will probably fail.

    I like the idea that there are quick and cheap ways to alter the climate, if we need to. But before we actually go ahead with any of them we better look long and hard into the law of unintended consequences.

    Of course the billion dollar price tag looks a whole lot better than the tens of trillions too. especially when it doesn't crush our economies.

    Will it work?

    That's really the only question worth considering.

    Ya know, when a retard has the letters "k-o-o-k' in its name, it's pretty hard to take it seriously.

    Hey skookerasbil - just a bit of friendly advice. The VAST MAJORITY on here see you as a looney tune due to your name and posting style. If you want to be taken seriously, change your Avatar and post using normal fonts etc.

    If you don't want to be taken seriously, then carry on s0n...

    I think you're being fooled by satire. Adding sulfur dioxide to the atmosphere would generate acid rain. Hardly something mainstream scientists would support. So, apparently you've been had. That's right you're a denier, so the "had" part is redundant! :cool:

    I didn't see any details.

    I saw nothing but a vague claim and then a lot of silly partisan whining.

    Sulphates in the stratosphere does produce cooling, from reflecting the incoming sunlight. It also produces acid rain, and at the scale neccessary to counteract the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere at present, it would absolutely have a number of unintended consequences.

    That doesn't seem to be the only detail that matters about cap and trade.
