Society has slowed down global warming several times over the last century without even trying, new research says.

A study found that the rate of global warming has ratcheted down in response to major world events, including the two world wars, the Great Depression and, most recently, a global ban on ozone-depleting substances.

    Another interpretation of climate science data that show the intricate relationship between the affairs of man with the climate. And it implies the necessity to curtail the emissions from carbon-based fuels....in my view with carbon tax and dividend legislation offered by the Citizens Climate Lobby. Fees are assessed for CO2 on a per ton basis at the fuel sources (oil/gas wells, ports of entry, and coal mines. All of the collected monies will be returned to the citizens, not to the government. Furthermore, all subsidies to the carbon-based fuel producers should be terminated. This will not cancel Global Warming, but will slow the progress of climate change, thus giving us a chance ,perhaps, to build an infrastructure, with emphasis on renewable energies, that may promote the survival of our civilization. Not a happy thought, but it has to be said. I hear that the Santa Fe City Council passed a resolution supporting a carbon fee and dividend. More power to them!
