I seem to recall Dr. Farnsworth (yes, from FUTURAMA) using this exact same measure to save the planet in the first episode of season 5... and well, I
for one, remember the consequences...
Quite a brilliant scene in the episode, as well.
The synchronized ooh's and ahh's of the unified human race, staring up into the insanely sized mirror in the sky, successfully blocking out the sun
by the required amount...
A lone, teeny tiny pebble (of which there are quite a few randomly floating around up there), made slight contact, and turned the mirror back towards
the earth, making the mirror more like a magnifying glass than anything else (almost a lazer! cooooooool), effectively roasting all the
'green-obsessed mad-scientists' responsible for such a stupid idea.
I propose something quite similar;
Lets just kill these idiots who think it'd be fun to turn the earth into a giant ant-farm, with a huge 'Made in the U.S.A.' Magnifying glass to
roast us all.
Some of these 'pro-green' people just go way too far.
Edit to add:
if this idea actually is actually in the works, then I fear it is already too late for the quote in my sig.
