I keep hearing and reading serious discussions by scientists about geo-engineering to try to mitigate or stop warming.

I have always been very skeptical about it. Now Jonathan Proctor, an agricultural economist at UC Berkeley has expressed it far more succinctly and eloquently than I ever could.

“You’re in an arena with a big bear,” he told me. (The bear is climate change.) “And the question is: Should you throw a lion into the arena? You know, maybe they’ll fight and kill each other. Or maybe they’ll just both kill you.”
Priceless.
