    "The Latest From Global Warming 1, Gores Mother Ship In Orbit above the Earth !"

    The unmanned ships would be directed by satellite to areas with the best conditions for increasing cloud cover

    The "cloud ships" are favoured among a series of schemes aimed at altering the climate which have been weighed up by a leading think-tank.

    The project, which is being worked on by rival US and UK scientists, would see 1,900 wind-powered ships ply the oceans sucking up seawater and spraying minuscule droplets of it out through tall funnels to create large white clouds.


    These clouds, it is predicted, would reflect around one or two per cent of the sunlight that would otherwise warm the ocean, thereby cancelling out the greenhouse effect caused by Carbon Dioxide emissions.

    The unmanned ships would be directed by satellite to areas with the best conditions for increasing cloud cover, mainly in the Pacific and far enough away from land so as not to affect normal rainfall patterns.

    I've got a radical idea - how about we don't mess with stuff we don't understand very well? My idea is really cheap and we can all participate from the comfort of our own homes.

    The moonbats heve some good ideas still out there! One was to get every one on one side of the earth to jump at the same time, that sounds reasonable, and I think the other was for everyone to open up umbrellas at the same time.
    Wish I had that kind of brains!

    But, wait! Can't we just attach cables to all the shuttles and rockets and tow the earth to a cooler spot!?

    These nutters NEVER think things through to their logical conclusions.
