Yes, frankly, I don't know what to do about this. The only completely renewable method we have for carbon-fixing on a massive scale is the planting of vegetation. But you would essentially need a near-soulless global police force to prevent, for example, the entire continent of Asia from chopping trees in the winter, and burning coal to cook their food.

Instead, I get the creeping suspicion that our generation - yours and mine - is going to bear witness to an absolutely unfathomable amount of human death and misery. We will fry, drown, and starve off this planet until our numbers become harmless again.

Mostly starve.
