The time for half hearted measures is long gone, the carbon will remain in the atmosphere for centuries unless we remove it. Reversing global warming is simple, sequester the carbon. Plants grow by consuming carbon and vast areas of earth (deserts) have very few plants because they lack water. The ice caps and glaciers are losing enough water to irrigate the deserts, we have the technology to bring this extremely pure water to the deserts. A close look at the NOAA CO2 chart clearly shows that the CO2 level actually drops during the northern hemisphere summer. This drop is because the northern hemisphere grows more plant life. With the deserts producing millions of square miles of new biomass the drop would become year round. I proposed this plan to Michael Oppenheimer (head of the US global warming study) and he agreed that it would work but that it would be too expensive! To expensive to save earth? Greed has become a disease that we humans can no longer afford. If a billion people would pool their resources we could do this without government or corporate help. With the deserts in production there would be places where refugees could go to live rather than squalid third world camps. Eventually the polar ice caps and glaciers would recover once again restoring balance to the earthly ecosystem. I was raised under KISS, keep it simple stupid, it is an idea that humans need to learn.

In an article in Fox News today the Admisistrator of NASA, Michael Griffon said in regards to global warming "I am not sure it is fair to say that it (global warming) is a problem we must wrestle with"! Do you suppose that since the head of NASA thinks this is true that we may be able to ignore the problem (along with Al Gore)??

Yes you could and should irrigate the deserts. It could be done with solar powered desalination plants. Saudia Arabia relies on many such plants.

Elsewhere there is a post about how saltwater can be burned under the influence of radiowaves. This could power desalination plants in sub-saharan africa to enable those countries to grow crops for Europe.

I accept that global warming is a problem.

I do not accept that carbon trading is a solution as you could drive a bus through it's loopholes to evade it.

Al Gore pointed out in his film "An inconvenient truth:"

Society only needs to cut CO2 emission by 7% to halt global warming.

If Society can reverse global warming by a 15% percent, global warming can be reversed.

Well the fastest way to achieve such savings is to drastically alter emissions from private vehicles by the accelerated uptake of of alternate energy vehicles.

We have hybrid cars now. Why don't governments create fuel user taxes to fund no interest loans to purchase hybrids and other alternate fuel vehicles ?

Incidentally half the greenhouse gas currently comes from methane created by ruminant livestock, cattle, sheep etc.

Al Gore's film was political not scientific. Can you quote something from science?

NASA has trouble going 61 miles, they have spent trillions of dollars and wasted over 40 years. Are you sure these clowns are the best people to decide our fate?

I have my problems with NASA too, but when their main man says global warming is something we can ignore... well. why should we ignore him? Because some of their projects fizzle and we think they don't give us the straight poop on ETs? Why shouldn't he know the facts about earth's atmosphere? I would also guess that he is well versed in politics and that is where the subject of global warming lays IMO!
