From New Scientist's section on Climate Change Far-out ideas may be last hope for curbing global warming

The 18 scientists hope to open up the bitterly polarised debate on global warming : while advocates of the Kyoto Protocol say climate stabilisation is vital and within reach of today 's technology, critics argue that it is unnecessary and exorbitantly expensive.

"We stake out a third position," says atmospheric scientist Ken Caldeira of the US government 's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. "Climate stabilisation is important, but we can 't really do it with current technology, even if we wanted to."

Excuse me, but isn't that the more pessimistic viewpoint?

I hope the chinese do well on mars.
