California eyes cattails to combat climate change
"RIO VISTA, Calif. - On one side of the gravel road are hundreds of acres of corn. On the other is a different crop that scientists hope will enable farmers to rebuild sinking islands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, combat global warming and make a profit at the same time ..."

I count four different issues to be considered before this latest anti-greenhouse proposal can be considered a success. (Scientists still remember the Australian rabbit problem.)

No easy solutions, no matter what the sound bites say. Happy

My church won't let me believe in it. Happy
The other day I forgot one, but I thought I linked this one.

"No easy solutions, no matter what the sound bites say" was my main point.
