Start Consuming Less Immediately Or They’ll Blow Up Asteroids To Create A Sunshade.

Geoengineering:  Corralling and blowing up an asteroid to create a sunshade.Prevent this tragedy! A team from Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde, proposed corralling and then blowing up an asteroid to create a dust sunshade that’ll block the sun’s rays and offset an expected 2 °C increase in mean global temperature. Just another example of geoengineering gone wild.

So if we do get desperate, and decide to go this route, we might as well practice on the moon. [ScienceDirect via Inhabitat]
