+ - US Proposes Large Mirrors to Fight Global Warming

Submitted by

eldavojohn writes "Washington is telling scientists to figure out how to reflect the sun's rays as a way to combat global warming. As per usual, the politicians might have over stepped their bounds in making assumptions about technology. From the article,

The US has also attempted to steer the UN report, prepared by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), away from conclusions that would support a new worldwide climate treaty based on binding targets to reduce emissions — as sought by Tony Blair. It has demanded a draft of the report be changed to emphasise the benefits of voluntary agreements and to include criticisms of the Kyoto Protocol, the existing treaty which the US administration opposes.
The US is urging them to think of ways (such as man made reflective dust storms) to use as "insurance" against rising emissions."
