I am still amazed by the capacity humanity has for being stupid and ingenius at the same time. Geo-engineering ideas are like something from Star Trek. Mirrors in space, firing sea salt into the atmosphere and other wacky schemes show just how ingenious we can be when faced with the challenge of climate change. And by a greater degree, our stupidity.

Fiddling with nature got us into this mess in the first place, all in the name of profit, growth and progress. We continue to put economy above environment, even in our smallest decisions.
It makes me angry that as a species we can’t be brave enough to admit that even if catastrophic climate change occurs, nature will find a way to continue – it’s what she does best – money on the other hand will cease to exist.
Only when the last tree has died
and the last fish has been caught
and the last river poisoned
will we realize that we can’t eat money
Please, don’t let it get this far.
(Not my usual jovial self, but sometimes we got to rant a little).
