Buying Time


The affects on Climate Change are upon us. Weather as we know it, is only becoming more and more extreme. The rise in temperature globally, even though very incremental, creates detrimental affects that including the melting of polar caps, the rise of sea level, and major natural disasters. Scientists believe that what is happening is inevitable, because we have surpassed almost all of the world’s planetary thresholds. So Mr. Musk, what if we invented something that was able to prevent the increased temperature change on Earth?

I have two suggestions, both of which will either prevent the increase in global temperature change or slow it down. The first is a world wide cooling system that could be created in way that it uses only renewable energy.  In addition, it would strategically be placed so that the wind can carry the cooler air and spread across the globe. Tests would have to be done in order to create a product that is actually successful and doesn’t have adverse side affects.

The second is synthetic molecules that replicate molecules that create the ozone layer, in order to repair the holes in o-zone layer. This would stop the sun’s rays from warming up the global temperature. The combination of these two products could potentially give human more time to create more solutions that can decrease Climate Change. Because we are truly running out of time to find a solution.

This idea isn’t intended to solve the problem of climate change and the many issues surrounding it, but its to buy us time to change our practices in to something more sustainable. It’ll give us time to make the transition from oil and natural gas to electric.

  1. I think an equally important issue in addition to the depletion of the ozone layer is dealing with the trapping of greenhouse gas emissions inside the earth’s atmosphere. The rise of the use of methane, nitrous oxide, and CFCs have been responsible for the greenhouse effect. It would be neat if there was a way for these gases to leave our atmosphere instead of being trapped inside.

  2. Hmmm. Have you looked into synthetic ozone? Surely someone has.

    I have heard of other ideas for climate change amelioration. SOme involve adding greenery to all buildings…

    It is interesting how the debate on solutions tends to focus on either technological fixes OR change to our economies.
