Regeneration of Earth's Climate Regulatory System!
Regulation via the planet's ecosystem - as in a biological kind-of-thermostat - is the answer to climate changes and global warming. And it is life, in the main, that does that.
A way to restart this so-called 'biostat' would be to grow and bring back the once dense biodiversity to the world's oceans, which have now become relatively impoverished and becoming evermore barren. The vast centres of the great oceans have now become a deep violet blue instead of the viscus rich greens, yellows and turquoise of life. Sterile Tantra is everywhere!
If we did bring back the biostat to its former magnitude CO2 would be gobbled up at an enormous rate. Gigatons of carbon would be digested, synthesised and caught in living ecology's in real-time.
But how do we do that?
I suggest you read a letter to Nature magazine by James Lovelock. Click on his name here: James Lovelock(sorry but the letter is pay per view, but it is mind blindingly grandiose in its thesis).

Lies, more lies and dirty statistics.
Today, the UK media (News Papers, TV, Radio, etc) have reported a government projection that says that Britain will face an energy crisis within 8 years.
I can understand the drama. It sells News Papers of course.
But it is simply not true when one looks at the evidence.
Grid parity (re; my blog post of 20 August 2008) is here and now in many alternative and sustainable energy generation technologies. Solar panel systems are growing exponentially in power feeds and falling in cost. The volume is not here now to meet energy that’s consumed now. But by 2017 it will.
