What effects might the aerosols have?

What if we use too much? Do we really want to risk a snowball Earth?

Do we really want to risk anything on such a large scale just because some yahoo wants to roll coal?

Can no one see that not messing with the climate any more than we have to is the conservative position, at least as "conservative" is properly defined?

Sometimes I think Americans are just going to sit on their asses and take all of this bullshit until the government actually does pull a Tiannamen Square on some protest, at which point the guns will finally be aimed at the people who truly deserve to have their heads blown off. Politicians.

When the government pulls a Tiananmen Square, it will be against Occupy Wall Street or some other bunch of Smelly Hippies. They will mow down people who Had It Coming because they were a threat to Real Americans. They will proclaim Fascism to fireworks and Sousa marches and they will call it freedom, and the NRA will be the ones repeating the Leader's propaganda.

Yeah, the music industry and record stores were run by hip, visionary geniuses from 1925 to 1998, then alla sudden everyone got stoopid.

There are bands from the 60s and 70s that still get airplay today. Meanwhile, just about everyone from ten years ago is now yesterday's news. Is there even one singer or band today who will still be relevant in 2054?

The "threats to our political and military stability" come mainly from our needing to buy fossil fuels and thereby fund our enemies. Funny how people who don't believe in global warming do believe in the global jihad, and yet the two have many of the same remedies.
