There is a case for climate engineering as a solution for global warming. If the increase of carbon dioxide in the air is the problem, why not directly remove it from the air? Reforestation is only one way. We have the technology to pull carbon out of the air and into the soils and the oceans. We can also cool the air through stratospheric sunshade, where we release sulphates into the stratosphere to reflect incoming solar radiation back into space. There are many other innovative solutions besides green energy and carbon taxes. It is not the time yet for despair.
