wow..
I personally feel that the earth would continue to heat even if all carbon emissions were stopped today. Weather modification is probably the only thing they have. I don't think there's any way to remove the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Well...ok, but there is that pesky little thing called photosynthesis..

~still~
Your plan has some merit, if we were to aim the Earth into the path of an asteroid we could seed our atmosphere with a whole lotta dust, yepper, things would cool down pretty fast, well, except for that initial fireball thingy. We could time it just right and have it hit the clothing district downtown Beijing, not so good for Walmarts or about 22 million people, but if you want to make an omelet ya gots to break a few eggs.
Not so sure about your nuclear option, although if deployed at the same location the residents could always prepare by building barricade shields out of piles of those little lead painted toys.

On the bright side, at least the gray-boxer from Kentucky is able to express his/her point of view on the subject without being insulting.

When a meteor exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in February 2013, pieces of the bus-sized space rock hit the ground while its detonation shattered windows, set off car alarms and injured more than 1,000 people.

Masked in the chaos, however, was an enormous plume of dust that the Russian meteor left behind in Earth's atmosphere. This cloud, which had hundreds of tons of material in it, was still lingering three months after the Feb. 15 explosion.

Every nation that has a little red button, push it at the same time. End this whole failed mess. Wipe the slate clean and hope the next bunch can get it right. This bunch can't decide what to do about traffic congestion, let alone GCC.

<quoted text>If every bit of ice in the Arctic melted how much would the ocean level rise???? Not an inch! The amount of water or H2O is fixed and doesn't change . If you have a glass full of water and ice does it overflow the glass when it melts???
We had a parent that complained to the school about that very subject. Using nearly the same exact misguided and misunderstood argument you used. So, the science teacher used the very same example that he used in class to demonstrate just how arctic ice melt "raises" sea levels. It's quite simple and only takes a few minutes.

1) unwrap frozen otter pop.
2) stand otter pop in drinking glass.
3) fill glass with water.
4) watch as melting otter pop makes the glass overflow.

Lesson learned) as the portion of otter pop that is above the surface of the water glass melts, it fills the glass with more liquid than is containable. When that happens, the glass overflows.

Hope this grade school example helps. The kids understood it, hope you can too.

Perhaps someone should explain to the Gore-bots that science shouldn't be treated as a religion, and should never involve giving fat, sweaty ex-Vice Presidents massages with "happy endings".

The right wing bigots and ignoramuses know perfectly well it's not Gore saying this, it's every qualified scientist.

And they've repeatedly revealed they don't understand the first, most basic things about science, climate, the universe, Evolution, vaccines, telling the truth. They're very sick is all.

good point. that can be the only reason why these alarmists promote an untested theory so vehemently.

Poor little religous-zealot-racist Sally. Still thinks a "qualified" scientist is anyone that agrees with only her opinion. Good luck on getting through life with that 3rd grade edumacation. LoL.

That's "should HAVE stayed...", not "of", o master of higher education. I guess you didn't hear the bell ring.
