Geo-engineering is critical to maintaining the status quo. Over the next thirty years, even if we warm up just 1 Degree Celsius.....we're looking at significant food shortages in the tropical and sub-tropical regions. What happens when rice can't germinate during the critical 10 day period because in order to do so it cannot exceed 32 Degrees Celsius during that period? The Russians don't need to wonder for long what will happen when Siberia becomes even better farming territory due to warming with 1 Billion Chinese just to the south of them living in a China that won't grow food like it used to.
The Pentagon has been spit-balling scenarios since 2006, under Bush, over what will happen when these food shortages occur. So, the CIA is going to look into this as well. They all know it's coming.
So, Geo-engineering will be our saving grace. And the beautiful part......it's relatively cheap. For example, one solution calls for turning ocean water into vapor and increasing the cloud layer thereby bringing temperatures down. BUT, the question is, who gets to do this? Theoretically, anyone can take the initiative to mess with our weather, in a way that benefits their country. But what is good for one may be bad for another. So, we're going to end up with an issue of who gets to do it and who gets to regulate what is done.
I hope I just brightened everyone's day
