In this great summer of our discontent, one factor has ruled perhaps beyond all others in the media cycle: climate change. We've entered the carbon capture. With a panoply of tipping points rapidly arriving at our doorstep, it's painfully obvious that not only will we need to stop emitting greenhouse gases immediately, but we also have to remove a large amount of the carbon we've already pumped into the air we share. One of our greatest curses when it comes to climate change is the sheer number of human beings struggling to live a comfortable life on this planet. This curse is in some ways also a gift, however, as our numbers allow so many of us to work on cooperative, if disparate, aspects of these tasks.
