    Well mankind can certainly destroy ecosystems.

    You asked what acid rain had to do with pumping S02 into this atmosphere, I answered the question.. If you did not want an answer then you should not have asked.

    Topic:cheap ways to cool the earth

    subtopic: Pump SO2 into the atmosphere

    discussion: what are the ramifications of pumping SO2 into the atmosphere

    how is it NOT on topic?

    But not with the incredible power and efficiency that nature can.

    No I never asked what acid rain had to do with pumping SO2 in the atmosphere; I asked what acid rain had to do with the thread topic.

    I thought I was pretty clear earlier. You may want to re-read where there has been FOUR previous periods of ice ages and warming long before man came along with factories and automobiles; I want the kooks to explain how the previous warming and cooling trends had anything to do with man; then MAYBE, they would have a case.

    Yes there were ice ages before - and guess what - there was a reason for those too! The reason does NOT exist for our current observed climate change.

    Now there are enough of us on the planet - well we can really make changes - seen a population curve growth lately?

    You mean besides the fact that we're in the middle of an interstadial period and the Ice Age is down in Miami taking a vacation? Never to worry, the Ice Age will be coming back.

    Sooner, perhaps, if, while we're in this period of global cooling people decide to take action that will cool the earth.

    BTW, you people ever figure out what the "right" temperature for the planet it, yet?

    Well, for me the "right" temperature would be one that does not @!#$# up civilisation as we know it - read the Stern review on the economic impacts of NOT doing something about climate change?
