Geoengineering is not the solution to global warming | Environment | guardian.co.uk
Tinkering with our entire planetary system is not a silver bullet. It’s an expression of political despair, writes Greenpeace’s Doug Parr
I don’t believe in silver bullets. They don’t work. Instead we have to get to work and make changes.
Without practicing one cannot be a good musician, without sitting not a zen-buddhist, changing one’s diet and exercising will always show more results than using diet-pills, enlightenment is a long haul, not a quick fix… ah, but how our brain WANTS to find the quick fix, the silver bullet. So, now some want to mess with a huge complex system (this planet) – in order to avoid making changes.
If you ask me, making fuel from food is a bad idea (((especially considering the size of the world’s population))), and so are nuclear power plants (((let a trillion small power-generators bloom… solar, wind, geo-thermal and stuff like this))) and geo-engineering. We are the ones who need changing, not the planet.
