Geo-engineering is mainstream

[Headslapping Late Update: I suppose the BBC and TNR pieces might have been coming out in advance of the Royal Society position paper, eh?]

With recent coverage at the BBC, TNR, and the Copenhagen Confusion (in addition to discussion at the WSJ, Atlantic Monthly, NPR (on the NAS), the AMS, Nature News, the Obama administrationCFR and others), geo-engineering is becoming undeniably mainstream, at least in terms of media coverage of the broader climate discussion. Politically, it remains decidedly more problematic in terms of international negotiations of logistics than emissions cuts, and I’m not sure how that will ever change.

[LATE UPDATE: DotEarth also channels the zeitgeist.]
