One question. If we can control the temp. of the Earth, what is the ideal temp. to set the thermostat at?

Km, that's a rhetorical question you guys always resort to, and as usual it totally misses the point.

The problem is not the set temperature, it's the rate of change in the average temperature. Whatever the current climate is right now we would be fine with - if it stayed basically the same for a few thousand years. But that's not what is happening. Climate patterns are now changing far faster than ecosystems can adapt. This rate of global climate change is unprecedented in human history.
