President Obama is considering “climate engineering” as a way of combatting climate change caused by carbon emissions, according to John Holdren, the administration’s chief science advisor.
The president’s new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth’s air, the AP reports.
One “solution” being touted by Holdren is “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays”.
Alarm bells were soundedback in December over the appointment of Holdren, following op eds that he penned slamming anyone who challenges the notion of man made global warming.
