      In short no.

      In long, I think we can reduce it’s impact but it will take a lot of work and cooperation. In terms of the science, I don’t think we’re far off with the technologies and know how to be able to make a massive difference to our contribution to global warming. Sadly, politics is also plays a massive part in this, which will slow everything down. So I think what will make the biggest difference in the near future is changing peoples attitudes to global warming, from the ‘ordinary’ person to world leaders.
