An interesting talk highlighting an idea of geoengineering to induce Global Cooling. He also talks about Paul Crutzen suggesting this idea, and I even heard Paul Crutzen in our seminar talk about this.
Yes, we have done zip and will not do enough, but I personally find the very idea that we could do something that huge and not, excuse my choice of words, fuck up everything is an illusion of grandeur. So I really like the conclusion in the talk (but I think it’s not David Keitch’s idea, but what Crutzen also wants to achieve): We will get the tools to manipulate the planet, and we now have to start thinking how we can prevent them from being applied.
Besides that, I think its hilarious that the online feed of this talk is sponsored by BMW…
