Of course they are not going to do anything about a problem they are not sure exists, and certainly not anything so drastic, and whose consequences are as difficult to predict, as geo-engineering.BrentThere are a couple of very interesting proposals on that front that are dismissed without proper thought. Global warming can kill us all, but so can energy shortage.
Hi Brent,Why is it that almost all of the Green proposals are exactly what would be required to push civilization back to the Stone age, once implemented fully? Frankly, I worry more about the impending Ice age which is about over due if the cycle that we see in the Vostok icecore data is real.
