Tom Becker reads from Zoë Carpenter's article in The Nation, "We Cannot Geoengineer Our Way Out of the Climate Crisis."

Carpenter argues that attempts by humans to change the climate (such as shooting a huge amount of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere to deflect sunlight) are so fraught with unpredictable consequences that it would be insane to make the attempt. Yet the attempt may become necessary if we don't reduce CO2 emissions. 7:56 minutes (5.45 MB)

Before a few words regarding the crimes of Enbridge:
What kind of people pay ttentioon to a pack of media weaselcunts who try convict and sentence their state's Governor before the investigation has even begun?
Oregonian weaselcunts, that's who.
When we have  Republican Governor signing off of Death Train, the Pacific Connector, oil freight terminals poisoning the Pcific Ocean, When we have the eastern deserts burning coal for thousands of miles around the train tracks, when we have mass extinctions of wildlife, when we have cut the last living tree, killed off every living thing...
Will you be happy then?
You got rid of Kitz, one of our greatest statesmen.
History will spit in your face.
