Clean Air Causes Global Warming?

I thought people couldn’t get any stupider. I was wrong.

Could Cleaner Air Actually Intensify Global Warming?

Some scientists, he says, are confident that this is connected to global warming, but they don’t know how large the effect is. “That’s the frightening thing, because if it’s a big cooling effect, it means that we’ve been actually warming the planet more than we know,” Kintisch says. “As we take away that unexpectedly helpful cooling mask, we’re going to be facing more global warming than we expected.

“If, however, the aerosol cooling is less than we fear, then it won’t be such a big deal as we clean our air, though it will still be an effect.”

The solution, of course, isn’t to stop cutting air pollution. “We have to continue doing that, because these pollutants contribute to asthma, they contribute to respiratory diseases, they cause all sorts of health problems, and they make our environment dirty,” he says. “But there’s a variety of answers that are more sophisticated than simply continuing to pollute.”

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

I understand the science behind it. Aerosols do have a cooling effect, that’s a given. The stupidity arises from the fact that these chicken littles are the same ones that think it’s okay to blacken the sky to prevent the Global Warming Catastrophe. I say shit or get off the pot. Make up your damn mind already!

    That geo-engineering stuff scares me. Anytime we want to inject something into the Earth or shoot something out in space in order to alter some function of the planet, I get a bit concerned. I’m never quite convinced they’ve thought this through properly. Maybe we could get into that kind of science after we’ve cured the common cold and learned how to predict earth quakes?

    Science is only fun, when it lets you dictate how others should live…I mean think about ALGORE just buying a 8 million dollar villa in California…what’s the carbon footprint of that guy?
