Possibly consider consulting some of the resources on geotherapy I included in this post.  They cover territory that, considering the interviews I've seen with Gates on his new book, has yet to explore.

Yep, and he is out there with lots of "solutions" that look pretty questionable. Michael Mann is upset about it.

The problem is immense and multi-dimensional.

I've been going to climate lectures at Harvard and MIT since the late 1970s.  Reading Geotherapy and attending some of the Biodiversity for a Livable Climate conferences have convinced me that we can deal with climate change most equitably and economically through geotherapy, which works at every scale and has little to no unforeseen consequences since it operates within ecological limits.

Then again, Michael Mann did not like my suggestion that we could avoid the political deadlock on climate by focusing on the idea of preparing for the next weather emergency, whatever it may be, by building a solar civil defense.  He seems to believe that poiticians have to admit the reality of climate change unequivocally and solutions that skirt around that are not welcome.  At least that was my takeaway from our short conversation once upon a time.
