Fleming quoted in a front page article in LA Times on March 5, 2014: “Climate engineering ideas no longer considered pie in the sky,” http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-climate-engineering-20140305,0,3602250.story#ixzz2v7PEHvt2

“I have seen all kinds of proposals,” said James Fleming, author of “Fixing the Sky: The Checkered History of Weather and Climate Control” and a member of the National Academy geo-engineering committee. “There is a crazy new one in my email every week,” he said. “There are a lot of Rube Goldbergs out there, and some Dr. Strangeloves.”
