Climate scientists: it's time for 'Plan B' - Climate Change, Environment - The Independent
To summarize, man-made attempts to reduce man-made CO2 are failing. So now man-made efforts to reduce natural CO2 must be developed.

Aside from the natural intervention from the Law of Unintended Consequence, these proposals are politically brilliant. Consider that the earth appears to be currently undergoing a short period of natural cooling. By applying even superficial man-made efforts to cool the planet, credit can be taken for reducing the long term effects of warming.

Just because our efforts to cool a warming globe have not met with success should not deter us from reaping the rewards of cooling a cooling earth.

Wearing thick socks today is a small price to pay for the opportunity to wear socks in the future.
