Well, he said he’d lower the oceans and cool the planet….

Obama thinks he may be able to control the weather. No, really.

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.

John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.

Did someone forget to tell Dr. Holdren and the President that the world has been cooling, not warming?

Are we sure The Brain didn’t get a job with the administration when no one was looking? And has he paid his taxes?
