Leading Climate Scientists Believe it's Time for Geoengineering

 

A poll done by The Independent reveals that most leading climate scientist believe that ts is time to start looking at geoengineering options, in addition to cutting CO2 emissions, in order to combat global warming.

Since the Kyoto Treaty was signed a decade ago, CO2 levels have continued to rise at such an alarming rate that they are past what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change calls its worst-case scenarios.

Geoengineering would use daring ideas to lowers the planets temperatures by man-made means, such as reflecting sunlight back into space by creating low clouds over the oceans with water vapor.

  The source  
 
There is a lot of good information at the source. I saw some scientist make low level clouds over the ocean using salt, I believe, on GreenTV (oxymoron i know). It's all very interesting stuff.

  Interesting!  
 
I've watched discovery shows on geoengineering. Very very interesting stuff. but it is also very very risky... to the point where we may not know what will happen. We could cause something far worse to occur.

But hey, if Joe Shmoe can drive his escalade to work getting 12 MPG.... lets roll the dice!

  Well  
 
I'm completely for it. We should have taken action years ago, the longer we sit and debate about what COULD happen, the closer we get to imminent doom.

So as Trevelyan said, LETS ROLL THE DICE.

  no no no!  
 
We have to save this attack for when sentient robots take over. Otherwise they'll know about it in advance and counter too effectively, rendering human survival and impending insertion into the Matrix unlikely!
