Pollute more, that’ll solve the problem

Some scientists, including a Nobel laureate, apparently proposed that we could fend off global warming by putting a thick layer of pollution into the upper atmosphere to “shade” the Earth.

This proposal was intended to get a reaction out of “policy makers”, something akin to Johnathan Swift’s Modest Proposal. However, it is apparently an idea based on real science, and some are taking it seriously. I have to wonder: didn’t they watch Highlander 2: The Quickening?

  1. I think most would like to forget they saw that abomination.

  2. Russell Mulcahy sure wishes you would. He only directed a handful of actual movies after that, the biggest of which was the forgetable adaptation of “The Shadow”. I would go so far as to say that Highlander 2 killed Mulcahy’s film career and relegated him to TV shows and straight-to-video.
