"Their helplessness in the face of my power will surely crush their spirits!" – Cobra Commander

Truer words have never been spoken.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The president’s new science adviser said Wednesday that global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth’s air.

John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month that the idea of geoengineering the climate is being discussed. One such extreme option includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays. Holdren said such an experimental measure would only be used as a last resort.

“It’s got to be looked at,” he said. “We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.”

I couldn’t help but visit the way-back machine to my youth when I read this. Weather manipulation? This is soooo the plot from GI Joe: The Revenge of Cobra. The plot:

In this film, Cobra is at it again. This time, they have a device called the Weather Dominator which can control the world’s weather and use it as a devastating weapon. Now the Joe team must find a way to fight Cobra when they seem to have the very elements at their command.

But, in all seriousness, the White House is once again shamefully utilizing the ‘crisis’ canard. They did it with the stimulus, with the budget and time and time again as they’ve rolled out their policy agenda. It’s making me wonder if they even know what a crisis really is.

President Obama, you can only cry wolf so many times.
