Good morning,

A story came out recently indicating that geo-engineering proposals to ameliorate climate change would likely be ineffective and might even make matters worse.

Some ideas are unlikely; like "alkalising" the ocean with limestone to cause a chemical reaction to absorb more CO2 from the atmosphere. Some are just ridiculous; like placing large mirrors in space to reflect the Sun's rays.

But if human interference in the ecosystem is the problem, maybe more interference isn't the best solution. Sometimes just getting out of the way and letting nature heal itself is the best option.

Please scroll down for a short but amazing video about the near-miraculous changes that took place in Yellowstone National Park after the natural balance that humans interrupted was finally restored.

Thanks for reading,
