The best way to frame the live question

Fighting global warming is not the best way to frame this live question of the day. For one thing it is a double negative, and no one has yet figured out how to do that. More importantly we need to focus on what we want to accomplish. It needs to be more than stabilization or even a return to the levels of an index year. If we believe that the earth is really a living organism, or is akin to one, then realize that the earth cannot stand still. Only when finally dead will it reach stasis. It is easy to posit we want global cooling, yet that is not likely to be good either. What do we want?
