Scientists Ponder Engineering Earth

With a shining record in the fields of food, health and safety, humanity finally stumbles on the final solution: diverting the rays of the sun. Everything could apparently be great if we could only shut off the sun.

A fitting illustration of lunacy and hubris for the Kali Yuga - the age of darkness. The next project, we suppose, would be to re-engineer life so it does not require photo-synthesis.

Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya...

BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | Engineering Earth 'is feasible':
"Such approaches could be effective, the authors said in their report.
But they also stressed that the potential of geo-engineering should not divert governments away from their efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Suggestions range from having giant mirrors in space to erecting giant CO2 scrubbers that would 'clean' the air.
Such engineering projects could either remove carbon dioxide or reflect the Sun's rays away from the planet"
