Obama - Climate Engineering - & Other Science Fiction

AP: OBAMA LOOKING INTO 'RADICAL TECHNOLOGIES TO COOL EARTH'S AIR'...Considers seeding clouds to fight warming...
'Shooting pollution particles into upper atmosphere to reflect sun's rays'...

WASHINGTON (AP) - The president's new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth's air.

John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.

"It's got to be looked at," he said. "We don't have the luxury of taking any approach off the table."

I wonder if this is as dire as the economic problem, where the awful legislation had to be passed quickly to avoid catastrophe, then once it was passed, Obama recanted, and stated that the economy wasn't so bad after all.

Also, if there is a quick fix to global warming, then does that mean we don't need to worry about it anymore? Can I start pooping in the front yard? Leave my car running at night to keep the engine warm? Use rain forest wood charcoal in my grill for the superior endangered taste? Melt down the polar ice caps for delicious bottled water? If we can just "geo-engineer" our way out if this supposed disaster, then I don't see what is stopping us from doing all of the aforementioned.

Look, when the proposed solution to a problem is this far fetched, this science fiction like, it tends to reflect the same shaky credibility on the problem it is intended to fix. In other words, this is a crazy ass solution for a crazy ass fake problem. The Earth is fine, if it was in trouble it could wipe us all out with a few earth quakes and tsunamis.

While they are at it, why don't they call Superman to fly around the earth backwards, real fast, reversing the earths rotation, thus turning back time. No wait, wait, why don't they have all the jet engines on earth, face towards the sun, and fire simultaneously, thus pushing the earth out of it's current orbit, further from the sun, so it's not so damn hot out here.
