Everyone keeps trying to pinpoint one issue for the reasoning of climate change. There isn’t just one reason. There is a plethora of factors that go into climate change. Let’s talk math for a second because in math it’s pretty black and white. So, we are dealing with different fractions: ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5 and 1/6. These are all different fractions, but they still can all have a common denominator correct? Okay, so climate change has different factors in it but the solutions we are providing are just a common denominator between one or two of the factors. So yes, geoengineering might be a great start but the effects are short term and the long-term effects will stay the same with the way climate change is headed. Geoengineering is just a techno-fix for the time being. Politicians are scrambling to just come up with the next thing to create money. We are in the position we are in now with climate change because of money. Geoengineering could be a possible viable solution to a part of climate change but not the entire being of climate change. The politicians jump on board with any new great idea that is an ignorant way of continuing to pollute and hurt our environment.
Yes geoengineering is a techno-fix. It’s lazy. Technology is a great thing but man can it used be wrong and that is the issue. I think if people actually understood and used technology correctly it would be a different story. Everything is going to just be a techno-fix until we actually decided to find a real solution. Enough with this hourly hotel rate lets get to finding real solutions.
