Concern over global warming is valid. Global warming almost certainly will result in instabilities that, at best, will be less than convenient, and, at worst, devastating.

 

However, as an engineer, I am frustrated that we tend to confuse causes, effects and solutions of global warming.

 

Causes, effect and solutions are all related and rationally engaging those issues is called problem solving.

 

From an engineering point of view, almost always, and if it can be achieved, a problem can be most effectively solved by removing the cause.

 

And the cause of global warming is simple: We are unnecessarily destabilizing our Earth by releasing way too much CO2 into the atmosphere.

 

It seems to me that everybody is prognosticating as to what the effects of that may be, but no matter what may happen, the solution is always the same.
