That's the problem, there is no problem to solve, it is inevitable, the planet will warm and cool and/or even freeze as it's always done.
Green house gases has been an environmental battle cry since the early 70's when they said we were headed for an Ice age; We have imposed the strictest emission stds there are over the last 40 yrs, we have driven industries either out of business or out of county and yet Gore says GH gas levels are on the rise, Why is this ??, Well, it's because our impact on the levels of GH gases and our attempts to lower GH gases are that insignificant.
Personally, the sooner we check our arrogance, the sooner we'll realize that there are forces far greater than us in play here, also the sooner the political game players stop trying to scare people out of their money or convince them that our advance technologies will save the day, the sooner people will start thinking adaptation, cause that will be the key to surival, not technology and certainly not Kyoto
