"shade the poles with upper atmosphere particulates"

Or with large umbrella-like sheets of thin reflective material which could be retractable and controllable. Expensive but very doable - by NASA. This solution was suggested by a NASA physicists last year. The uppity-ups laughed at him!!!

The ignorance and inertia is pervasive in so many places and levels. It's heartbreaking.

It should be the other way around

Meat eaters should be apologetic.

I will not eat any meat, even my fish and seafood, in front of a vegetarian. I think it's disrespectful.

Little story: My son not long ago was graduated and wanted to go to an expensive steak house to celebrate with his g.f. I ruined the whole celebration by losing control of my emotions. I couldn't eat and spent half the time sobbing in the restroom. Most of the time I'm calm and sometimes carnivorous but other times the reality of it all smacks me hard. I grew up on a farm, watching my baby calves hauled off. Childhood emotions and scars run the deepest and appeal to our better selves.

Thank You! I always value your knowledge, GG.

I agree with all you've said.
I hope, however, that civilization has perhaps 35 to 40 years. Probably not realistic, I know. But because my one and only child, my son has just finished grad school and embarked upon a career, I'd like to think he could live a longer life. In that way, I'm like every other mother, our children are our first concerns, or should be. At least I have only one offspring to grieve for. I contributed only one more polluter. /

❤ to you for Valentine's day.

"Aid and comfort" has been interpreted as giving info. Why has the U.S. convicted some citizens of crimes of treason when they passed secret info to the Russians? We do not know what info has been passed to Russia. We need to find out if they interferred with our Democratic Process, our elections. Any private citizens, having done what Rump's administration has done would already be under investigation.
