That makes perfect sense. You have to be oblivious of what's going on to have children these days. I always feel bad for any kids I see today. Living to the end of this century? Holy crap.
People are irrational. Beliefs trump facts most of the time.
If they knew how much they (and the entire economy) had to cut back to do anything substantial about AGW they'd be climate change deniers.
So we know which ISPs to avoid or if we should switch.
The carbon increase in the atmosphere can a) be compared with the amount of fossil fuels burned and b) has a different isotope isotope composition because 14C has only a few thousand year half life so fossil carbon is practically devoid of 14C. Not speculative at all, falsifiable and tested.
You'd be surprised how many software packages have a complete Perl under the hood.
Will I have to wear red/green or polarizing glasses to recognize anything on my phone? Will I have to carry spare cardboard glasses if I want to show a girl at the bar my latest photos?
> Try looking up albedo
Sorry that's too sciency. Don't you have anything at the hurr-durr level?
If you read the article you should have noticed that melting and refreezing makes larger ice grains which have a lower albedo than snow.
Yes! There's the solution: The wormhole printer! Just add a wormhole to the print head and you can print on other planets. Why did nobody else think of that? Jeez!
Yup, you'd need some *serious* nanotechnology to be able to print functioning cells, and you'd have to know the wiring of a brain to the subcellular (probably molecular) level to make it work. Not within the next 30 years.
However you may want some backup from science if you make real world predictions (and prevent real world solutions because people are pre-occupied by la-la-land.)
Make that 2030 and you're on the right track.
You may want to look at numbers - how long it takes to build nukes, how much that needs in terms of money/resources, availability of uranium, amount of fossil fuel needed to mine uranium etc.
I didn't claim that it can't fix anything but it won't save the economy when fossil fuel depletion hits in earnest.
