Liberated Carbon Makes The World Go Round

It's also killing us though...

I'm not quite sure what to make of Andy Revkin's work these days, although that's due at least in part to the fact that the NYT doesn't push posts to feed readers just titles which means I don't see all that much of his stuff.

The point is largely that we need to find ways to make the world go round without (or at least with less) carbon which is why it's good to hear about the continued growth in the alternative energy generation sector and to see more hybrid and electric cars on our roads. 

The answer is pretty clearly not to just keep pumping out the CO2 wily nilly and then try for some last second desperation geoengineering solution.  That's not innovative, it's nonsense and it was very disappointing to see the NYer (where Elizabeth Kolbert has been doing such good work on climate change and the environment and human's effects on the rest of the natural world) address it as a serious idea (and no I'm not going to link to it).
