Global warming. Climate change. These are buzzwords that everyone is familiar with. We use these terms loosely to describe the cause behind the temperature anomalies.
How should we solve this? Should the forefronts of engineering and technology be concerned with pushing frontiers and expanding our sphere of influence, or should we focus all our resources and efforts on keeping the flower pot that spawned us as fertile as possible? Can one progress only at the expense of the other or are both possible or are they mutually exclusive?
