Space Mirrors from the Cancun Loonie Bin!

The level of scientific debate about climate has reached such a low ebb that whacko ideas suggesting geo-engineering such as space mirrors and/or iron filing seeding of the ocean have not been treated with the ridicule they deserve. These scientists have been reading too many Buck Rogers comics!

UN scientists are to consider putting mirrors in space and sprinkling iron filings in the sea in an attempt to cut global warming, the climate change summit in Cancun has heard.

Speaking at the summit, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said the Panel's next report on global warming would not only look at the threat of rising temperatures but also consider "geo-engineering" options that could reverse warming.

This is the latest from the IPCC Department of Silly Ideas following the bio-fuel food scandal and the solar panel fiasco which is so bad that even George Monbiot bags it.
Pachauri should stick to writing dirty books and leave serious work to more rational people.
