DARPA Invented the Internet, Now It Will Stop Global Warming

Earth in SpaceIf you don’t know what DARPA is, you will soon.  The Defense Advanced Research Group invented the internet back in 1969, and now it has set its sights on geoengineering a cure for global warming.  What does that mean? For one thing, it means that a communications network originally designed for national defense somehow morphed into Perez Hilton, D-Listed, and TMZ.  For another — well, now that DARPA has put algae-fuel and bioplastic plastic fuel on its A-list, let’s hope that so-called clean coal project gets the D-listed treatment.
