It looks like only geo engineering could have any chance of undooming us from more than +2C global warming
I(t just worries me as that is how we got into this mess in the first place! I suppose this time around we will be very mindful of our impacts though?
I am sure carbon capture, of various applications, will become widely available to us should we will it so ...... it is just getting that 'will' organised and I'm still afraid that it will take something truly horrible to garner it from the masses?
No politician wants to commit to massive spending on this but once they are 'forced to' then it will not be a 'choice' ( free will) but a 'response' ( forced action)?
The question is, what "force" would it take? If it takes something devastating like a methane burp or the irreversible collapse of the remaining icesheets or all the rainforests or any combination of the above to "force" the world into action then even the most powerful and farfetched geoengineering won't save us from a runway greenhouse state.
