Time to Act Unconventionally to Address Climate Change
Reflection has the advantage of not requiring reduction of the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere. The increase of carbon dioxide has had important beneficial effects.

The current concentration of carbon dioxide remains below that under which many of our most important plants evolved.
