Scientist Tells Senate: I Can Fix "Global Warming," Cheap

The claim is that changes to the atmosphere are trapping more heat and warming the earth. Of course, there are other changes that have happened naturally -- such as volcanoes venting thousands of tons of reflective ash into the atmosphere -- which tend to cool the earth.

So, if these guys are really all concerned just about maintaining earth's ostensibly-unchanging temperature, why not just blast some albedoizing ash into the upper atmosphere to screen out some of the Sun's Killer Rays of Death, thus offsetting the effects of added CO2, the Invisible Killer?

It would make sense -- if climate change were not simply warmed-over Marxism and Luddism in a shiny green wrapper. So there is of course no chance any of the alarmists will even consider this fix to what they claim is our Inevitable Doom.

Because these techniques mimic natural phenomena, we know more about how quickly and well they work than we do about the efficacy of attempting to reduce greenhouse gases. We have measured the effects of the natural processes and can state with considerable certainty, bordering of complete certainty, that they will produce the result sought. Although the effects of greenhouse gas reduction would occur over a period of no less than decades and more likely centuries, the effects of geo-engineering can (and will) be manifest in a matter of weeks after application.

... Geo-engineering is ... 200 to 2,000 times less expensive ... than exclusive reliance on carbon control.

They're not pro-nature, they're just anti-human. They don't like industry and they don't like human freedom from the travails of the natural state. So this have your cake and eat it too solution has no appeal to them -- they want to take away the cake. That's always been the game.
