I begin to wonder about how far we'll go in dealing with global warming. I remember Pinatubo set global warming back a decade; if the worry is albedo we've got all sorts of ways (that are universally catastrophic for the locals) of increasing it.

You seem to have linked to that before last night's escalation between India and Pakistan. Noice.

Also, are you interested in a browser plug-in that replaces "albedo" with "libido"?

Yeah that India-Pakistan thing is interesting. There's a lot of speculation and not a lot of data. It seems to me that if either side really wanted this to continue there'd be a lot of data and very little speculation. Here's kinda what it looks like to me:

PAKISTAN: ohhhh shit the hillbillies went kinetic

INDIA: ohhhh shit the rednecks want blood - quick bomb something utterly inconsequential

PAKISTAN: ohhhh shit the Indians bombed us but did a really shitty job

INDIA: ohhhh shit pretend we bombed something consequential

INDIA, PAKISTAN: points at clouds, whistles off-key
