Lord Rees, the Astronomer Royal, claims that launching mirrors into space, triggering algal blooms in the oceans and seeding clouds are just some of "Plan B" schemes which will have to be considered by world leaders unless carbon emissions can be cut in the next 20 years.

He is due to tell the British Scientist Festival in Newcastle that although it is an “utter political nightmare” because “not all nations would want to adjust the thermostat the same way “, hacking the planet through geoengineering will have to be discussed, the Guardian reported.

The planet will win in the end as it has done for millions of years. When its had enough of us it will send along something to exterminate us and let some other wildlife come up to ruling standard.Reptiles, then Mammals,so maybe Insects are next on the list.

(1) try your best, ............if that dont work.
(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win
