The Aztecs' model program for managing meteorological events didn't work so great, and perhaps our leaders feel that removing the actual blood-letting aspects of it will do the magic trick.

We do fail to teach our children well. Might be time to create a comprehensive timeline of human attempts to tame the implacable forces of nature, with an analysis of how well they worked.

Climate change is indeed a global problem. No one individual, no small country, can have a big impact in reducing pollution. So you propose, we do nothing?

What do you propose?

It would be great if you had a really good idea about how to alleviate the problem.
