There are no solutions to our energy problems.

The best we can hope for is intelligent mitigation.

Get used to it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    with chemo, there are some solutions but they are not perfect and may create more problems than they solve but... there are solutions.  

    Alternative energy is the least invasive solution at this time and if all governments were 100% committed, we could solve this issue with minimal damage (relatively speaking).  However, too many conflicting interests will push us to the point where more drastic measures are required.   Eventually, we look to blasting tiny reflective particles into the atmosphere blocking the sunlights harmful rays.  Nobody knows what unintended consequences this will cause.

    A doctor often prescribes the patient to try all other solutions first but eventually, more drastic measures become necessary when doing nothing becomes more destructive than the potential cure.
