World Bank funds mountain painting project

Up in the Peruvian Andes, a World Bank funded project is painting the mountain-tops white to keep global warming from melting the glaciers (Peaks whitewashed to slow melting, Bangkok Post, September 15, 2010). The area in question is a semi-arid region subject to droughts and supplied by melt water from evanescent glaciers that have come and gone in cycles for thousands of years. Glaciers recede during the dry period of these cycles – not because it is too hot but because there is not enough snowfall. The current state of relative dessication is a part of a natural and well known weather pattern in the Andes and it cannot in any way be related to GHG emissions or to global warming. The project to paint mountain tops is just the kind of lunacy that bad science often engenders.

Wonder if any of those envirowhackos considered the enormous amount of energy needed to produce that much paint? How about the environmental impact study required to slap on the first brush full of potentially toxic paint????
