For about the last 50 years, we've paid the bill for 'clean air.' Much of that money was well-spent; remember Gary, IN.'s iron-rust-air, or the lovely coal-dust and coal-ash treatments your cars got? How about that semi-combusted, lead-laden gasoline odor, or the black, sticky, smoke from old-time diesel engines?
Yes, MOST of that money was well-spent. We did all of that--and more--to prevent Climate Change which will kill everybody. We know that it will kill everybody because........experts. Yup.
Now it seems that Bill Gates wants to spray a bazillion tons of CFCs into the atmosphere.
To prevent Climate Change, of course!
The National Academy of Science wants in on the deal, and asks for only $100 MILLION to kick off its research into the idea.
Better--and far cheaper--idea? Revive old-fashioned diesel engines. Ask Red China for them; they have plenty. For that matter, ask Red China to double their target for coal-fired electrical generation over the next 10 years. They'll be happy to do that.
Tell Bill Gates to relax. We can handle this because we're experts!!
