    From cited article: "The solution is not to burn more fossil fuels, but less." No it is not! As I stated before in this forum, engineering technology is the solution, not self destruction. In April I was thanked by the teacher of a class for which I was providing remote instruction. I explained that if technology is creating a climate problem, then technology can solve it. She told me that I gave her 120 students new hope. Yesterday I heard on the radio of new technology that removes 90% of CO2.
