In Reply to: Manhattan Project. That's a good idea. I had not posted by Cato on December 5, 2007 at 5:59 am:

Goddard Space Studies Institute, in NYC.
He's been calling for action for over 20 yrs, and what's happened? Our emissions, and those of the rest of the world have been going up exponentially.
Scientists don't set national policy. Politicians do.
A Senate committee today passed a bill to cap emissions on to the Senate. The unbelievable denialist, Senator James Inhofe has vowed to filibuster the bill in the Senate, thus requiring 60 votes for it to pass. I think the democrats have only a one vote majority, so who knows? The only way the republicans will back it is if they get a clear message from their constituents that if they don't, they're out.
I'm not sure Dr. Hansen would take the job himself. What's needed is for all the major companies to be backed by the federal government, or forced, to expedite the production of solar panels, wind turbines, wave generators, and probably nuclear, to reduce our emissions as quickly as possible. Continuing research, which would also have to be at least partially funded by the government, would, no doubt improve the technology of the above systems. Using even existing technology, we could reduce our emissions by perhaps 30% in the next 5 yrs. But somebody has to force this to be done. I think that's the government.
