    Should we use high-tech or low-tech methods and means to mitigate global warming?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    My usual advise is to buy when the price is low and sell when the price is high. In this case though I advise to buy high land and sell all your low land property. This would be a real good time to sell off that swamp land investment in Florida.

    But consult geologist before you buy. Because higher land always tends to slide down.

    No. Because we cannot do that yet. It will simply be a child play.

    Why should we choose? Seems to me that we should use what works, whether this is high-tech or low-tech is completely irrelevant.

    Or am I confused and do you ask whether we should try to mitigate global warming? Seems to me we should. We got one earth, we cannot run the experiment again.

    Both. Or really, whatever will work. If changing peoples behavors makes a difference, I think we should inform them.

    But if we want to keep some of our high energy lifestyle, we will need high-tech solutions.

    In our present economic condition maybe we can't afford the more high-tech systems. Also the low-tech approaches don't attract the interest of highly educated folks, or investment money. It looks like we've stalled out.

    If you had to choose one, which would it be?

    I have wondered about that all my life. When I was a kid I use to play in the area by the river where all the storm water drained. I use to see houses on a cliff that looked like they could fall if a good storm came along. As it turns out the Federal Government beginning with Roosevelt has provided money for this area to make sure it does not get washed away with erosion. In fact the last time they did a really good job and it is holding up real good now. There is a lot of money for projects like this now a days. I have a friend that worked on 80 million dollar projects on the Niagara River where he ran a tunnel machine and they were building 25 food water pipes. So high water is NO problem for the great lakes. It is very easy for them to drain off that water into the ocean. In fact people fight over that water and what it to make money off of.

    So I guess here we are using high tech solutions for global warming to deal with the water. My water and sewer bill runs about $60 a month. That seems like a lot for me but it gives them the money they need to deal with all the water and any flooding. So multi million dollar projects are very common. Them old hollowed out tree trunks that they run into every now and then are just not going to get the job done of draining off all the storm water.

    They have no choice. The politicians can line their pockets with money all they want. But when houses and cars get swallowed up with a broken sewer pipe, then they have to fix it. As the old times use to say: The squeaky hinge gets oiled.

    Whether a high-tech system can be afforded depends on the system and what you want to use it for. I disagree that the low-tech approaches do not attract the interest of highly educated folk, my experience is that they quite like the ingenuity of low-tech solutions. Again, it would seem to me that you tailor your choice of high- or low-tech on the particular problem you want a solution for, instead of just blindly favoring one over the other

    But perhaps you have some specific examples of low-tech or high-tech solution that have been favored or not?

    Choosing one and excluding the other is dumb. You keep all options on the table and choose depending on the particular problem.
