HOORAY FOR ACID RAIN. Okay so the pH3 drizzle might not be so good for your car paintwork over time (though not a bad as the throwaway culture we live in eh readers), but it might be saving us from global warming. I love this kind of science. It is all about equilibrium after all, pollutant A actually sorts out pollutant B – for a bit. Then we might need pollutant C to sort out pollutant B. But there’s a hole in our bucket.

All that said, it still has not been made clear to me why we have to sort out global warming. Yet again the global climate is constantly in flux. Just because this flux is partially the upshot of human action, doe snot mean that the world cannot cope with it. And frankly if it means nice sunny days, or entertaining disaster flicks like The Day After Tomorrow, I’m all for it.
