    Peter, I don’t know if you have seen this but the impact of DMS on ocean cooling clouds may have been over estimated.

    Impact of sea smell overestimated by present climate models

    A good way to spend 50 minutes on a Friday night when there’s nothing on TV. Joe Romm gets it, and did a good job of laying out a lot of reasons for hope.

    Unfortunately, it’s a very narrow path we must walk along the edge of a precipice that is crumbling beneath our feet, and we’re running out of time. Showing what progress we’ve made and projecting that into the future neglects all the IF’s that stand in the way. The biggest being IF mankind is unable to develop the “moral society” that will be needed to recognize and deal with the threat of AGW in the near future, we are doomed. Romm did a good job of laying out the technological fixes, but didn’t address how we could deal in time with the “forces of evil” that stand in the way. He is kidding himself if he thinks “the markets” will respond in time.

    Solar electricity is going to be too cheap to meter! Romm gives a rousing, optimistic talk. And much of it may be true. I learned a number of things.

    But when he gets to the too-cheap-to-meter claim, I start to wonder whether he has gotten ahead of reality in his enthusiasm. I keep noticing that solar power generation is still almost at the epsilon share.
