This is a very important point, IMHO. Since we would be "playing"
(experimenting?) in a large-scale way we have not before, and have only
computer sims to guide us, it would behoove us to have some
straightforward way of undoing our efforts should they not work out quite
as we expected... kinda like the many other things we do that have
unanticipated consequences.

My dad used to comment that wood/trees were solar power.

Although I'm tempted to agree with spike that the world seems too cold
much of the time, I would dislike seeing where I live be much warmer
during the warm times. Thank heaven for central heating!
