Admit it, you know it was the first thing you thought of

My first thought on reading this graf in the Sydney Morning Herald? (via TPM and Jack Balkin)

The US response says the idea of interfering with sunlight should be included in the summary for policymakers, the prominent chapter at the front of each panel report. It says: "Modifying solar radiance may be an important strategy if mitigation of emissions fails. Doing the R&D to estimate the consequences of applying such a strategy is important insurance that should be taken out. This is a very important possibility that should be considered."

Mucking with the amount of sunlight hitting the earth? Man, the oil industry will do anything to eliminate solar energy competitors.
