Moonbats Are Painting Andes White to Please Gaia

Since the imaginary global warming crisis is absurd, efforts to combat it must also be absurd. Fortunately, moonbats have the ideal mindset to come up with appropriate solutions — such as painting the Andes white:

By painting the mountains, Eduardo Gold hopes to replicate the effect of Andean glaciers, which reflect back sunlight and hence heat back through the atmosphere.

This sounds like a joke, but they’re actually doing it.

Four workmen have been given the task of painting three peaks, starting with Peru’s Chalon Sombrero peak, which lies 4,756 metres above sea level. … The painters who have already completed two hectares of a planned 70 have been recruited from Licapa village, which depends on the run-off from the mountain for its water.

It’s unclear whether they are painting the mountains solid white, or painting a giant white likeness of Al Gore’s face.

Global warming isn’t real, but damage caused by fools mistaking their left-wing ideology for scientific reality very well might be — if only the economic damage to those forced to pay for environmentalist master plans.

The £135,000-project is funded by the World Bank after Mr Gold won a “100 Ideas to Save the Planet” competition last year.

That means money stolen out of your paycheck finances this lunacy.

Painting mountains white won out over some other fascinating ideas:

Firing mirrors into space to reflect the sun’s rays, or feeding cattle garlic to reduce methane emissions have been mooted.

Peru’s Environment Minister Antonio Brack sums up the mountain-painting project succinctly:

“It’s nonsense.”

If it doesn’t cause liberals to proclaim the problem to be solved, why don’t we paint the ocean? Maybe we should try painting it black, so the sun can’t find us.
