More Global Warming News!
Okay, you're going to have to bear with me on this one, I just got it off Msnbc.com. Apparently, "scientists" have devised a new theory called the volcanic dust proposal. Basically, what it does is "mimic the cooling effects of a volcanic eruption". The plan is pump millions of tons of sulfates into the stratosphere, which supposedly can reduce solar radiation. However, one problem the scientists are saying is that if we did this, it could dry out parts of the Middle East and North Africa. This is even more ridiculous than the idea that human beings are warming the planet in the first place, to suggest that we can put together a sulfate blanket and dry out entire regions. People do not have that much power, no matter what you here, and if we do something like this, it isn't going to make a damn difference in any way, just like the other proposal I wrote about this week, which involved dumping millions of tons into the ocean to absorb greenhouse gases. The earth is just to vast in size to be affected by ships or planes going out and dumping sulfate and iron. Millions of dollars are being wasted to concoct proposals like this when we could be using it to provide clean water to people in poor countries, fight diseases, and give our soldiers the funding they need on the battlefield. Once again, this whole human caused global warming controversy is just like a religion. I should have added it to my list of major religions I posted earlier.
