Climate Control Made Stupid: More Pyramids Now!


As the religion of warming implodes Greens need to reach back to more ancient attempts at terraforming. Here's one with a lot of potential as proposed in Modern SCIENCE Predicts Made-to-Order Weather in 1934.

This has the dual advantage of combining a tomb with terraforming:


Of course, the ancient Egyptian pyramid oooga-booga would be updated with standard GreenWhacko SooperTech oooga-booga (WiFi,iPhone App, Facebook Page, Battery-powered Bong, etc. ). And better still we could erect these pyramids on the most underused real estate on the planet, graveyards.

Golf courses and Ivy League campuses are good locations for pyramids. Also, that big domed building on Capitol Hill should be razed and replaced with a humongous pyramid, like the one on the dollar bill, complete with that eye, floating and revolving above it.

"...a humongous pyramid..." Yeah, a triangular one.

In other words, it would take less time to build a pyramid than it would to build the Twin Towers.

Jewel, that was in 1934.

Nowadays, $156 million, 22,000 people, and seven years is what it would take to get the permits.

Correction: that's $156 million in 1934 dollars. At Purchasing Power Parity, it amounts to about $3 billion, or .003 Obama units.

Ric - Obama units eh? Looks like they are the same size as Shrub units. You know, the same ones he spent 4 of blowing holes in Iraq in response to an act of war by Saudi Arabia?

Very droll - 'cept the Shrub's intentions were to strengthen the US and the West - Obangers intentions are to weaken them.

Fletcher, you and the rest of the Leftoids persist in seeing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as punitive. They aren't, and never were.

The fact that you can't see any other possible justification, and in fact reject any such, means you're a primitive tribalist at heart.

Well... One could argue, and many have, that 9/11 was used as a pretext for cleaning up the mess Shrub's daddy left the last time. One could argue that a punitive expedition against the actual perpetrators (and nobody seriously suggests that the Saudi royal family weren't at least very important in this case) might have sent a better signal than invading a country that had nothing to do with it, thus ripping up the rules about sovereignty, looking for WMDs that weren't there on the basis of a dossier plagiarised from a ten-year-old PhD thesis.

One could argue that a strike against the whole ideology that inspired 9/11 in the first place might have had a more salutary effect than what was actually done. One could also argue that the real reason for the perps not being called to account was that they were the then President's friends and business associates.

Which country was the first in the 21st century to start a war of aggression against a sovereign nation? That's right - the USA, "the home of the brave and the land of the free". The Founders are turning in their graves.
