Jed, this may be plausible but I believe it wiser to cut our dependence of fossil fuels and become a world less concerned with over-abundance. The actions I propose are win-wins. More vegetation (more planted and less destroyed) = a more beautiful world with more carbon dioxide absorbed and less carbon dioxide emitted into the environment. More biking and walking = healthier people and less pollution; carpooling = getting to know people and less pollution; alternatives to fossil fuels = improvement in environment..air, water, etc. All of these will bring about a healthier planet. As James Cameron states above, these are years of opportunity. Let's do it.
