If your ridiculous scenario would take effect then the solution is simple, release more greenhouse gas. It's a lot easier to put more in than to take it out. Your point is we don't understand it well enough so lets just close our eyes and hope for the best. I'd equate that to driving at night without the lights. Normally it'd be a good idea to slow down. You are saying just keep going because we can't know for sure what's in front of us.
There are reasonable steps we can take to limit the risk without totally slamming on the brakes. For example, I'm not riding a bicycle to work but I sure wouldn't mind a more energy efficient vehicle.
#1.. you obviously aren't smart enough to get in my head so please stop trying. Don't post what you think I'm saying. READ what I post and go off that. We'll both be much happier.
#2 No, I am saying let's not take any drastic action but instead be SMART and invest heavily in FINDING the right answers BEFORE we do stupid shit.
#3 That doesn't mean stop or even slow innovation in regards to new energy sources or conservation or efficiency.. that is just idiotic.
#4 My REAL concern isn't even the practical nature of any of this... I am here to white knight for SCIENCE. I want to stop the ridiculous scare tactics and more importantly I want to stop the ridiculous attitude of ABSOLUTE certainty that comes across like a bunch of ****ing Jehovah's Witnesses telling me I am not one of the chosen 144,000 going to THEIR heaven.
