Is this the answer to the global climate change problem?

Postby Draco » Mon Jan 28, 2008 4:19 pm

An article I found that has methods of slowing or stopping global climate change with Geoengineering.

My question is this, Is this the answer that will solve the global climate change problem?

The idea that I see on geoengineering is good, no question that it is for the benefit of at least a many. However, it's right too that more research should be done further before the technology is successfully utilized. Global climate change is considerably large-scale one. Sometimes It seems ironic that we do things to cure something larger than us,--exactly the very home where we live. Of course as concerned humans living in this planet, we would not just sit and wait for the earth's ability to restore its normal state, surely that it can but the process will take many years. That initial action is good, but the question is how many "concerned humans" do live in this planet of ours or should some deserve it as "really ours"?

Every places are inhabited by so many people already. I think that we should keep on educating and empowering more of every single citizen about the spreading effects of global climate problems. Awareness of human activities is very much necessary. Some people here keeps on burning their garbage without any enough idea about the effects of what exactly they are doing.

As for any technology or research alike, no doubt that these are of course expensive in a kind. Some too are high-energy quality utilizing ones.

For once | understand what your getting at but if we don't do something to help global climate change slow down then humans will die out before the earth is habitable again.
That correction process takes millions of years, perhaps even billions, and all during that time the earth will be nearly barren of life. It isn't just us humans that are going to die out; it would be about 90% of all life if we go by records of what survived other global apocalyptic disasters such as the stagnant oceans and the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs.
If we don’t do anything soon it will be too late.

I am getting your point here. Though I am also thinking of some countries which might not be able to afford those kinds of research. And when I think of a country's economy, environmental concerns and biological conservation are less prioritized. But somehow, we must really act now and save this home of our own.

It is the US and the UK that is doing the research and the pipes are going to be installed offshore in areas of the ocean that are classed as international waters, or at least that's how I see it is going to work.
