agreed. It's true geoengineering takes a long time to take effect. But that doesn't negate the necessity or utility of it. I want my kid to grow up and see polar bears.

I'll agree with you that the auto industry has been IMO unfairly put forward as the main culprit even though they made great improvement in their level of emissions in the last few decades.

Let's face it, a city like London with its millions of inhabitants is facing some serious flooding problems if the level of the Thames River rises a few meters due to a climate change. So apparently it's easier to reduce the emissions to avoid a rise in the river's level as opposed to relocating a whole population.
