Sometimes I wonder i we could have saved ourselves if we hadn't ignored the Kyoto Protocol. Where would we be today, if a thousand more Floridians had voted Gore, and Bush jr. hadn't had the chance to refuse ratifying the Protocol? Most likely even that would have been too little too late, even if the ratifiers had actually committed to their promises. (I'm ashamed to say my own Norwegian government, which did indeed ratify, completely ignored their own promises, and we're currently nowhere near fulfilling our goals. And there are no real consequences to that. Well, other than the potential extinction of our species due to out of control climate change of course.)
Personally I think this report is just more proof that it's time we start taking direct control of our climate through climate engineering. Of the proposed methods I'm leaning towards a planetary sunshade. All the amazing progress we've seen in rocket technology over the last decade couldn't have come at a better time.
