Work, work and more work. So fewer posts. Time for thread. Suggested topic this article (hat tip Moth)
The US Central Intelligence Agency isn’t just interested in gathering intelligence on foreign powers and enemies. As it turns out, Langley is also investigating the feasibility of altering the environment to fight the effects of climate change. The CIA is currently funding, in part, a $630,000 study on geoengineering, the science of using experimental techniques to modify Earth’s climate, as Mother Jones reports. The 21-month-long study was commissioned by the National Academy of Sciences, a nonprofit group of scientific advisors to the government, and a final report on its findings is due to be published in the fall of 2014.
I have a feeling the “debate” will tip this way over the next 2-3 years.
Think tanks will soon switch from outright denial to cheer leading geoengineering.
Welcome to the Anthropocene guys.
