Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for this diary. I didn't know any of this beforehand.

While I do think the words "climate control" are an oxymoron, we will have to address what seem to be practically insurmountable problems by at least trying to control climate at some point.

The drug metaphor is also apt. I'm thinking of William Burroughs who knew of a radical but absolutely effective treatment for drug addiction. Basically, you poison the addict everytime he takes the needle. Pretty soon, the human bottle learns that poison + heroin = extreme sickness. It's effective. It works in the end.

Burroughs underwent this treatment, and then he spent the rest of his life thinking about himself as a poisoned, damaged human being.
