Action. Reaction.

There's no such thing as an action without a reaction. Or a consequence, as I tell the kid.

Geoengineering To Mitigate Global Warming May Cause Other Environmental Harm

ScienceDaily (Aug. 7, 2009) — Geoengineering techniques aim to slow global warming through the use of human-made changes to the Earth's land, seas or atmosphere. But new research shows that the use of geoengineering to do environmental good may cause other environmental harm. In a symposium at the Ecological Society of America's Annual Meeting, ecologists discuss the viability of geoengineering, concluding that it is potentially dangerous at the global scale, where the risks outweigh the benefits.

Here's another report on the issue.
