    One word: “Kudzu”.

    (And it was the most practical of his suggestions.)

    Personally, I’m more worried about the approaching Ice Age caused by the much-ignored sunspot shortage.

  2. My favorite was Paul Erlich in the 70s and 80s saying we had to melt the polar ice caps or we were ALL GONNA DIE!!! from the coming ice age and then, in the 00s, saying we were ALL GONNA DIE!!! when global worming melted the polar ice caps.
    And people call me anti-science when I point and laugh at their doomsday cult.

  4. Yang: “…inject sulfur dioxide in the stratosphere to reflect sunlight away.”

    I thought one of the justifications for ethanol in gasoline was to reduce sulfur oxide emissions.
    I guess this genius Yang would like more acid rain and global cooling, maybe even give us a few years like 1816 (The Year With No Summer) where dry sulfate fogs and summer frosts plagued most of New England and Western Europe with widespread crop failures.
