Green has become a reactionary force on climate issues in recent years by pushing simplistic
and ineffective solutions for the energy and climate crises. Geoengineering is a word they fear
so much they deny it very existence.

Geoengineering means looking beyond special interests or national interests
to human ecology and the needs of the biosphere.

This means disqualifying any solution that cannot be applied quickly on a global basis.

This greatly simplifies the problem,
there are very few solutions that most countrys can afford.
Today's proposals are well beyond the means of even the United States.
And it is beyond wishful thinking to hope that prices will soon fall an order of magnitude.

Space based sunshades and atmospheric sulfates are not attractive solutions
but the are not the only ones offered.

My favorites are weather modification and kite based wind power.

We need to find and test only those systems that can be globally applied,
If we really want to save our children.

This is why greens need simplify the problem.

To get more focus and results.

On election night in my country I couldn't see much beyond that which was The Green Party to be quite honest.

Information overload.

Thinking Green with limited thought behind what this meant other than this is a good thing, served me well at the time, I believe.

Should I think beyond that which is Green, no doubt!

There is only so much information though that my brain can take without shutting down!
