Presidential frontrunner is a geoengineering advocate

Republican presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich’s embracement of global warming pseudo-science isn’t limited to cringeworthy PSA’s with Nancy Pelosi, not does it stop at his advocacy for carbon taxes. Gingrich is also a vehement proponent of geoengineering.
Geoengineering is a product of the harebrained and potentially catastrophic scientific fringe which posits that using airliners to dump huge amounts of sulphur into the atmosphere, injecting the oceans with nitrogen, and parking giant spaceships above the earth to block out the sun, is necessary to avert global warming.
“Geo-engineering holds forth the promise of addressing global warming concerns for just a few billion dollars a year,” Gingrich said back in 2008. “We would have an option to address global warming by rewarding scientific innovation. Bring on American ingenuity. Stop the green pig.”
Perhaps this was what Gingrich meant when he described himself as a “conservative futurist”.
As we have documented, geoengineering, which is already being conducted by U.S. government agencies and major universities, threatens to cause more environmental damage than “global warming,” even if you believe the alarmists, could ever possibly accomplish.
But it’s par for the course for someone like Gingrich, who has enthusiastically backed the kind of “green economy” being pushed by Obama that left Spain with a 21 per cent plus unemployment rate, not least when he joined forces with Nancy Pelosi to push the Obama administration’s cap and trade agenda that would have completely bankrupted America.
Gingrich’s penchant for using man-made climate change to ‘solve’ man-made climate change is shared by Obama’s White House Science Czar John P. Holdren, who wrote a 1977 book in which he called for a “planetary regime” to carry out forced abortion, mandatory sterilization and all manner of draconian measures in the name of saving mother earth.
But if you think Gingrich’s advocacy for space mirrors and cloud seeders is “out there,” check out what else he has embraced, from orbiting death rays to EMP armageddon. You wouldn’t trust this man to sell you a used car, never mind be in control of thousands of nuclear warheads.
Gingrich’s desperate back-peddling on his support for global warming alarmism and carbon taxes is yet more evidence that the former Congressman is a political chameleon who flip-flops whenever it’s convenient for him and whose political campaign has no principled foundation whatsoever.
