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?
And those would be what? Solar power, geo-thermal power, tidal power, wind power, liquid thorium reactors - which exactly do you see as stone age technology?
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.Ice Core
Maybe you wouldn't be so worried if you noticed that CO2 peaked at 300ppm on all those warm cycles and it's now at 390ppm and climbing so fast it's just a vertical line on the above time scale (unlike the previous cycles). Or maybe you're just part of the denialist industry.
