Sometime back, a scientist suggested that one of the most cost-effective ways to prevent global warming would be to toss a bunch of sulfur into the air. The sulfur would reflect solar rays -- and therefore heat -- back into the atmosphere. You do enough of it, and the Earth would cool.

This was tested science -- not some hypothetical thought experiment. When Mt. Pinatubo in the Phillippines erupted, the sulfur dioxide it spewed into the atmosphere cooled the Earth by 0.5 degrees Celsius with a year.

Of course, the scientists/environmentalists screamed bloody murder that anyone would even make such a suggestion. After all, practical solutions that don't entail a complete restructuring of Western civilization and the continued impoverishment of the Third World are not acceptable.

You may not have heard about it on the news, but it's happening again. A couple weeks back, the Kasatochi volcano in the Aleutian islands let loose.

You better put on a jacket.


Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow https://www.noozhawk.com/article/vandenberg_sfb_bids_farewell_to_delta_iv_heavy_rocket

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1573069778021150722

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
