We can still avoid the most serious consequences of the climate crisis:
âoeFor a couple of years now, climate scientists have agreed that to avoid the most serious consequences of global warming we need to cap the planetâs average temperature at no more than 2 degrees C (or 3.6Â°F) above where it stood in the 1800s. The temperature has already risen by about 1Â°C -- the longer we wait to rein in greenhouse-gas emissions, the harder it will be to reach that goal â" and the recent international climate talks in Doha made it clear that emissions arenât likely to be reined in anytime soon.â
âoeThis raises the question of how much more those emissions could grow before the 2Â°C target becomes physically impossible to achieve. And a recent paper in Nature Climate Change has a somewhat encouraging answer. Even if annual emissions nearly double by 2020 from todayâs 30 billion tons or so, it would still be possible to cap the temperature rise at 2Â°C, or at worst, rise slightly above that level before coming back down.â

From the page: "Terraforming is not science fiction but reality: humans are remaking the surface of our planet. We are altering the composition of the planet's atmosphere and fundamentally changing the entire global climate. We remove mountains and dig miles beneath the surface for minerals. We cut down and destroy entire forests. We wipe out species and communities of species. We divert and consume entire rivers. We've stored so much water behind artificial reservoirs that we've actually changed the planet's orbital dynamics (just a wee bit - don't panic).
But we've lost sight of a fundamental principle: "can" does not mean "should." Modern civilization must learn that the ability to do something doesn't mean that we actually should, especially in the field of large-scale geoengineering. "
Naomi Klein is one of my heroes.
This would definitely rock.
