IPCC 'considering sending mirrors to space to tackle climate change'
telegraph.co.uk ^ | JUne 16, 2011

Posted on 06/16/2011 4:19:23 PM PDT by PROCON

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) papers, leaked ahead of a key meeting in Peru next week, outline the series of techniques in which scientists hope will manipulate the world’s climate to reduce carbon emissions.

Among the ideas proposed by a group of 60 leading scientists from around the world, including Britain, include producing “lighter coloured” crops to reflect sunlight, blasting aerosol “mirrors” into the stratosphere and suppressing cirus clouds.

What exactly is earf's optimum temperature?

Idiots!

A spokesman for the IPCC was unavailable for comment

Hmmm, wonder why...

Do these idiots know that numerous solar scientists have just declared that the sun is going into a low activity phase ? Only a complete moron would want to cool a cooling planet.

I thought the sun had nothing to do with global warming? So why then are we trying to reflect the sun’s energy into space with mirrors and white paint?

I also thought that this was a greenhouse effect? Does the fact we can indeed reflect energy into space mean there is no greenhouse effect, and therefore global warming theory is bogus?

The IPCC has LOTS of experience with mirrors. Smoke and mirrors that is.

The scam is obvious - they are no more going to put “mirrors” into space than I am going to fly to the moon. It’s all about getting your paper picked for the conference and getting an all expenses paid trip to Peru. Put another way - Mental Masturbation.

Why do we even stay in the UN? Waste of money and time.

Why doesn’t The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just mind their own f’n business?

Why? Because there are still potential trillions of taxation dollars to be swept up via carbon credits. Al Goreghoul will not be denied don’tchaknow! ... Well, his bosses in the banking families anyway.

They are trying to justify their existence, and it aint easy when you are wrong all the time.

Mirrors in outer space—LMAO. Like there isn’t enough space junk out there now.

Lighter colored crops. Maybe we can genetically engineer crops to be white when we plant them instead of Green.

These are 60 leading scientists. God help us.

Yes, and if they send the mirror up soon and it does not get warmer, they will claim success.

seriously.. Jor-El will send a mirror with Al Gore’s image to space to refelct the rays and save the planet but when it doesn’t work, he’ll have to send his son in a home built space ship to a far off planet...

The Sun has a lot more to do with global warming than human behavior. (But you knew that already).

I think the greenhouse effect theory is that it occurs much closer to the Earth than these mirror satellites would orbit. What scares me is that these mirrors would potentially usher in a new Ice Age.

On a positive note, I am almost 60 and I will either be dead or demented by the time this hoax is enacted.

NASA is broke and they have become a muslim outreach agency anyway. Maybe they can eat some mirrors and bend over and blow it into orbit... because we sure as hell ain't paying to send them into low Earth orbit.

Greenpeace influence seen in climate report(IPCC)

We don't have money to waste for all of this foolery when good science says there has been no recent warming, and it will probably cool.

“All three of these lines of research to point to the familiar sunspot cycle shutting down for a while.”

And guess which fools (US taxpayers) will be stuck with the tab for this boondoggle?

On the other hand....

...it might confuse space aliens who might be planning to take over our planet. Come to think of it, space aliens might be responsible for global warming. Maybe the IPCC can investigate it?

As long as they get grants, they’ll do/say anything.

They’ve also suggested spraying the sun with black paint, but I see that was omitted from the report.

O.K., and the next step will be to blast our Narcissist-in-Chief into space so he can admire himself in those mirrors.

It sounds like some of the maroons actually believe their own propaganda.
