    Scientists Finally Offer A Practical Solution To Global Warming

    A regional nuclear war between Third World nations… would likely ravage agriculture and kill millions of people, scientists reported Monday. …(V)ast urban firestorms ignited by war would send thick, dark clouds into the upper atmosphere, blocking the sun's rays and cooling much of the planet, with severe climatic and agricultural results. The soot might remain in the upper atmosphere for up to a decade.

    "All hell would break loose," said Prof. Richard Turco of UCLA's department of atmospheric and ocean sciences.

    And I was worried about moving to Reseda, with our 115 degree highs last summer. Now if it gets really bad, I’ll just hop on a quick flight to Pakistan and leave a bag of flaming poo on President Musharraf’s doorstep with a friendly little note from [president of India] Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

    Uh-huh. And how exactly would one define "small scale" when it comes to nuclear war? Perhaps...10,000 deaths? I wonder if someone somewhere can use the global cooling effect to justify the need for a nuclear war.

    Considering all the lies that have been trotted out about Gore, I'm surprised that the Onion came up with this story first.

    I read that report this morning. Also did you read that the US was doing a routine radiation sweep over Washington DC and the instruments went crazy over the Israeli embassy.

    I wonder what would of happened if it was the Iranian embassy?

    Ha Ha- this is what would make GWB pull his head out of his ass and say

    "Yeeeah, Ithink it's time we get aboard the SOLUTION wagon."

    Yee Hah! Stop Mad Cowboy Disease.

    Skyking asked:

    "I wonder what would of happened if it was the Iranian embassy?"

    Oh, no doubt, the Bush adm. would have found NO More Weapons of Mass Destruction, just like they did in Iraq.

    You did realize the post about nuclear war solving the prob of global warming was a tongue-in-cheek thing, right? I think it's from The Onion or from Francis' website . . .
