Painting The World White: Isn't That Racist?

This is a serious proposal endorsed by our new Energy Secretary, Nobel prize winning scientist, Steven Chu. He thinks painting everything white will reduce the effects of global warming.
Steven Chu, the Nobel prize-winning physicist appointed by President Obama as Energy Secretary, wants to paint the world white. A global initiative to change the colour of roofs, roads and pavements so that they reflect more sunlight and heat could play a big part in containing global warming, he said yesterday.
I have railed against Barry O's energy and environmental team from day one. They are the biggest bunch of global warming, Al Gore apostles out there and they are continuingtheir push to eliminate all carbon-based forms of energy through everything from their outlandish cap-and-trade policies, which will devastate the economy, to blocking any attempts at drilling for oil and natural gas to shutting down Yucca mountain to store spent nuclear waste, effectively shutting down nuclear power.

Of course, if North Korea manages to lob a nuke into this country or carries through on their threat to attack South Korea after announcing they will no longer honor the armistice signed in 1953, I wonder if Americans attitudes will change?
