i think the point of the article was to show that everything is on the table....
a statement was made that these ideas were just unproven, untested, not hashed out yet 'Options' that might be discussed, as the talks of solutions gets ramped up.

As for a spaced based screen allowing some polarized light to reach the surface....hey, don't we utilize that principle in our everyday lives right now?
walk into the outdoor garden section of targets or wall-marts, what you got over your head? what about shade awnings attached to your patio for shade....
nothing unique in principle of providing shade & coolness, its only the location out in space that's odd.


global warming will cause sea levels to rise...........Well, so what!

migrating populations are nothing new,
if groups want to keep living in a location, use "Venice" as a model for adapting to living in a water landscape.

sheeze, if the arguement is that 'we' dont want to radically alter the earth & 'we' want to perserve it, the way it is
Then Why Do 'We' build shelters that essentially divorce us from the environment & forces of nature we live in??
we create seperate & contained bio-spheres that estrange us from nature,
breathe HVAC air, thrive in artifical light, drink waters laced with cryptosporems, etc etc etc....

The nature that the propogandists want to 'save', is kicked out the front door of our habitats and we all complain that we even have to venture out into the elements at all, wind, rain, sun, temperature, dark of night, are adversaries to this modern culture

Smoke and mirrors? Isn't that what we are getting already from this administration and its apologists? Just look at some on here who do their best to distract any thread on this subject from actually looking at the real issue which is does human activity contribute to global warming, and if so to what degree and, again if so what should be done about it? They throw up all sorts of FACTS to "prove" their point of view and get belligerent if anyone should dare disagree. We need to face the issue and ask serious questions about it, not debate debatable praticulars.

I doubt reducing emissions will do much of anything to solve global warming. So there needs to be other solutions, even if it means installing giant mirrors on satellites to reflect and absorb heat! Or we can just deal with global warming.

But cutting carbon emissions by 20% ain't gonna cut it.

Its better than nothing which is what this administration is doing now and even if it doesn't affect global warming, we will get better air for the effort.

Unless all the methyl hydrate deposits under the ocean decide to turnover and belch their gas into the atmosphere (which would probably kill us all), I'm more worried about the health of our oceans than any other single thing. If the oceans go then so do we.

this is true and the ocean's health is not that good anymore... shortsightedness and arrogance will sneak up and bite you on the ass every time.
