I’m sure there won’t be any unintended consequences with this.
As planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, some have been driven to explore desperate measures. One proposal put forward by the California-based non-profit Arctic Ice Project appears as daring as it is bizarre: to scatter a thin layer of reflective glass powder over parts of the Arctic, in an effort to protect it from the Sun’s rays and help ice grow back. “We’re trying to break [that] feedback loop and start rebuilding,” says engineer Leslie Field, an adjunct lecturer at Stanford University and chief technical officer of the organisation.
It’s no nuttier than nuking the Arctic to induce nuclear winter.
A California non-profit wants to sprinkle glass fairy powder in the Arctic. How about they conduct a hundred year test trial by sprinkling it over California first as a wildfire retardant? Let them be the first to own any environmental consequences of their supposed genius.
These warming cultists are dangerously out of control.
I say we round up the extremist warming cultists and drop them in North Korea…with a parachute…because I am humane.
Steveegg, we could do both! First, seed it with glass and then nuke it to fuse it all together. Boom! Protected nuclear winter glass. That would work too right? Or should we try that over California first too?
“Or should we try that over California first too?”
Oh, please, yes.
No nuttier than this:

“spitballing ideas”, like nuking a hurricane, surely isn’t the product of a stable genius, more like a threat to humanity.
He was kidding.
You are dumber than Sheldon Cooper trying to understand sarcasm.
>“spitballing ideas”, like nuking a hurricane, surely isn’t the product of a stable genius, more like a threat to humanity.
See kids what happens when you let your hatred and jealousy of another person get the better of you? Leroy is still comparing Esteemed Mr Trump to a whole alphabet of schooling, trying to use his idea to somehow negate the absolute stupidity of theirs. Leroy, shame shame.
“He was kidding.” Says who?
I don’t even hate you or mar.
Fuck you, sociopath.
You are a Liar and a hateful vile person.
Says anyone with a brain operating at 1% capacity.
Are you below that threshold?
So k, you don’t know if he was kidding or serious, do you? trump has made a number of pretty outrageous claims in the last 4+ years, what magic decoder ring do you possess that tells you what is kidding, and what is serious?
The sociopath should have said:
” I made a number of pretty outrageous claims in the last 4+ years”.
There, fixed it for you.
Sorry mar, I didn’t claim that Keith Hernandez was a murderer, you did.
Fixed it for you.
Again, the sociopath has nothing.
Not even original.
You are dumber than Sheldon Cooper on Sarcasm.
Why do you have divine right to claim he was not kidding?
Actually, I thought the “settled” science behind global greenhouse gas warming was that the extra gases in the atmosphere retained more heat, thus overheating the earth from above. Isn’t the whole idea of global warming that the atmosphere is retaining extra heat? Won’t reflecting extra light back through the gases just make it gain even more heat in the atmosphere? Seems counter-intuitive to the science settlement in Libland.
Now if you could get reflective particulates into the upper atmosphere, I could see that helping the greenhouse gas warming scenario. You know, reflective particulates in the upper atmosphere, like from a large volcanic eruption that cools the earth for decades. Or in other words, a sample of settled science (because of the proof from past eruptions, don’t ya know). Or we can sprinkle glass on the ground to reflect more heat into the greenhouse gases…
Tuerqas, it’s just another example of how the “Science” and “Fact” liberals use Occam’s Broom far more than any other group of people. And Leroy is Occam’s janitor.
