I heard McNerney interviewed on NPR the other day. Fascinating stuff.

We need more scientists in government.

geoengineering is dangerous and these loons don't even know the problems they will end up causing.

Clowns still trying to find a way to make a buck of suckers. We expect that from Ca. loons.

As the nation continues to grapple with historic floodifng and wildfires, Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) has introduced legislation to explore innovative options to combat the root cause of these intensifying natural disasters: climate change

Get the combat boots on the crap is going to get deep.

This is an inevitable progression of a civilization, the issue is there cannot be "oops, we made a mistake".

"This legislation would provide for a federal commitment to the creation of a geoengineering research agenda and an assessment of the potential risks of geoengineering practices."

This is a great idea. The alternative is wearing hairshirts if serious efforts to halt global warming are taken.

Someone should start a thread about the hazards of wind power to explore where that path would lead.

they say a little knowledge is dangerous, and they are right. at this point in time we have a little knowledge on how our climate works, just enough to be dangerous. and now those with even less knowledge than the so called experts(ex meaning has been, spurt meaning drip under pressure) are wanting to make things even worse by letting these so call experts do things to the planet without having ANY idea of what will happen, and what the consequences of doing these things are, and not just the environmental consequences either.

have we learned nothing from lighting the fire of the atomic age?

Sounds like a good idea to research.

However the conspiracy theorists will go absolutely NUTS over this, you can count on it.

Right, well, the point of conducting research is to learn more.

If we don't conduct research then we'll remain in a constant state of ignorance. And the private sector isn't set up to research problems of this scale, since it isn't profitable in the short term.

research is fine, i have no problem with that, as long as they can keep it in the lab, and not out in the real world. the problem is though that the things these people want to do have to be done in the real world because there is no way to properly replicate the actual climate in the lab.

I didn't see anything in the article that provided such specifics.
