As you all know, I believe don’t believe in global warming – at least not in the way it is usually presented. Is the earth warming? Probably. But if you ask me if I think I global warming is caused by humans, will lead to disaster, and that we should rank global warming as a top threat to human civilization…my answer would be a profound NO!!! There are many reasons that I tend to think global warming is bogus, and here is one.
Urban heat island effect – On hot summer days, urban air can be up to 10°F hotter than the surrounding countryside. Not to be confused with global climate change, scientists call this phenomenon the "heat island effect." Heat islands form as cities replace natural land cover with pavement, buildings, and other infrastructure. Increased urban temperatures can affect public health, the environment, and the amount of energy that consumers use for summertime cooling.
Assuming the heat island effect and all my other concerns regarding global warming are wrong, I still don’t think the answer is to limit CO2 emissions. Many liberals say we should not restrict our civil liberties because of a terrorist threats. I tend to agree, but I also believe that we should not restrict our economic liberties in order to combat global warming. So how should we deal with global warming? Assuming it is happening, this is the only good answer I’m aware of.
One way to curb global warming is to purposely shoot sulfur into the atmosphere, a scientist suggested today.
Injecting sulfur into the second atmospheric layer closest to Earth would reflect more sunlight back to space and offset greenhouse gas warming, according to Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in
Germanyand the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Universityof Californiaat . San Diego
Crutzen suggests carrying sulfur into the atmosphere via balloons and using artillery guns to release it, where the particles would stay for up to two years. The results could be seen in six months.
This is the American answer. Lets use the military to solve global warming. Imagine, we could stop global warming without a need to conserve one kilowatt-hour of energy.Stumble It!
