I was told about an Australian news item that I just couldn't believe was real. I looked it up, and sure enough, it was real all right!
Dr Tim Flannery is a scientist - and 2007 Australian of the Year!
He is quoted by AAP, and therefore news all around the world, as having stated in a public address at Australia's Parliament House that drastic measures are needed to curb global warming, including adding sulphur to plane fuel so that sulphur could be dispersed into the atmosphere and create cloud cover, and setting up an eBay style carbon trading scheme.
I know, I didn't believe it either. Check out the 19 May 2008 story "Tim Flannery's Radical Climate Change "Solution"" at news.com.au.
And he admits to having no idea what adding sulphur to the atmosphere would do to the planet!
Is this scientific statement as responsible as others that have been published?
