  •  We are quickly moving from (4+ / 0-)

    denialism, delayism and on to geoengineering.  Since humans, on the whole, have dug in to protect their precious fossil fuels no matter what, the powers have decided that geoengineering is to be the be all, end all.  I can't even begin to describe how morally repugnant that is.  However, it just may be the only out for Homo Sapiens sapiens.
    It may or may not work and human history may just have hit a fork in the road.  Nevertheless, there already is a horrible  stretch of human misery and death baked into the current scenario.

      Unfortunately, there is no such thing as magic, but there sure is something called unintended consequences.
      Putting a band aid over the destruction of a global climate wound is the height of hubris. And we all know what comes after hubris; the Fall. But, it's almost certainly the way we will choose as a species.

      R-Money/R-Ayn, the ENRON Ticket, is not a campaign; it's a hostile takeover bid. UPDATE: a failed takeover bid
