image for Japan Launches Greenhouse Gas Satelite

Scientists in Japan are testing new technology to save the planet: they're pumping tanks full of CO2, and blasting it off into space.

Perhaps one of the most innovative attempts to solve global warming problems, this method involves putting the canisters into orbit and then using automatically unfolding solar panel to power tiny thrusters to keep them there until such time as some new planetary calamity requires an abundance of carbon dioxide.

In a telephone interview that no one in the office was able to interpret, we believe the lead scientist explained that this new method allows us to stockpile excess gases, and the re-insert them into the atmosphere on an as-needed basis. He also may have pointed out that the cost for this process is only slightly more than the total budget of all industrial nations, but he may have just said to have a good day.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
