I'd call that criminally stupid.

We understand enough to know that pumping enormous quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere is warming it.

Geo-engineering responses to climate change doesn't necessarily mean an attempt to reverse it or generate cooling. It can be used to mitigate the impacts of anthropogenic activities and sequester carbon.

Unless we're willing to forcefully occupy the entire world under an environmentally friendly government that actually enforces it's rules, none of this really matters and you're all best of just preparing for the inevitable change anyway Tongue

Not necessarily. We can still mitigate the rate at which the climate continues to change if we can sequester enough carbon while reducing our emissions.

We'll have to adapt, alter, and amend policies and lifestyles along the way, sure. But that's societal progress the same as it always has been.

I think we'd be better off avoiding it or at least reducing our impact. If we try to "fix" it, we're sure to fuck it up.

I absolutely agree.....

The ONLY solution that I see - that has the best chance of working --- is reducing the size of the human population.......

But, good luck getting that plan implemented...

The change is inevitable. That doesn't mean we can't do anything to lessen the impact.

Certainly, burying our heads in the sand will get nothing done.

I've not heard of anyone trying to fix it, have you? Consider
