This problem of global warming is not a simple puzzle.

I do not doubt the earth is warming, I just doubt the simple correlation of CO2 and temperature is the only driving variable. If we cripple our economies to mitigate CO2 output and find the earth heats up anyways because we ignored the other variables, then where are we?

There are other corollaries such as industrial output and population growth and urban sprawl that follow current environmental heating. No one is proposing reduction of any of that to curb global warming.

And even though I am a firm supporter of nuclear power, I support as much renewable energy ( solar, wind ) as possible with the understanding that storage and distribution must be taken into account to make it feasible to power a modern society.

Here is a solution on a utility scale proposal that makes an attempt to more effectively harness the growing use of solar and wind production.
