The science can only inform what we choose to do (if anything) - it can't dictate our choice(s).

Accept the science, then go from there. Denying the science gets you nowhere.

At some point it's rational to come to the realization that mankind's planetary engineering from ignorance might only do more harm than good.

Just as the next-ice-age'ers talked about painting the ice caps black back in the 1970's, now we're watching people slash and burn forests in the name of 'renewable carbon-neutral' energy.

If I may quote the great master Oogway,

"One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it"

When it comes down to it. "don't do anything crazy" should always be Rule #1.

Nope.

Revenue-neutral carbon tax at the wellhead/mine.

Let the market and entrepreneurs figure it out from there.

As we've seen, the market will move onto the trees for energy so long as it pays. It's hilarious that a man of logic thinks some kind of effective World Energy Gatekeeper could ever be erected.

Burning wood isn't carbon-wise.
