Radical scientific suggestions for undoing global warming.
This is a very strange article. I'm not sure what to think of it. The basic idea is that, because the political response to global warming has been pathetic (a point I'll gladly accept), science needs to figure out more radical ways to dick around with the Earth's climate in order to solve the problem if (when) it gets out of control. This sounds like science fiction rather than science fact to me. But, if it is actually possible, I'd be worried that playing around with the climate deliberately, rather than accidentally (as we are with global warming), would have even more disastrous consequences.
