|Mankind knows it's something we don't want to see, but Global Warming has now become impossible for us to stop, as Damn the Matrix makes clear.
Geo-engineering may not be a great plan, but it's our only hope now. We need to capture CO2 from the atmosphere and bury it deep underground for a start. That will take out most of the catalyst for higher temperatures in the atmosphere, but it won't solve the problem of acidification of the oceans which is killing coral reefs around the world. For that, we need to grind up limestone and dissolve it in the oceans of the world to raise pH to offset acidification. That's the smart way to approach the problem.
Geo-engineering also has the potential to create a lot of jobs, something the economy hasn't been able to accomplish since the supposed end of the last recession.
