An informstive and very worthwhile article. The only issue I have with it is it doesn’t recognize that CO2/GHGs are only a minor contributor to the overall global warming and it doesn’t recommend developing/utilizing non-natural methods of producing water, which is really needed to control drought in various areas. Recent warming appears to be caused by the Earth itself (core heat). This is the most likely cause responsible for the melting of the permafrost and the Arctic and Antarctic glacial melting. As we likely won’t be able to control the Earth’s behavior directly, we need to look into means of modifying its effects, such as by supplying water to the areas of drought by non-natural means. Desalination, the technology of which has been vastly improved over the last few decades, is one method that needs to be utilized much more than it presently is.
