"Mankind currently is not only facing a major environmental challenge, it is embarking on a hugely risky enterprise -- that of climate mitigation. This unprecedented global adventure is an attempt to change the nature and shape of human society on the grounds that our traditional market system has failed us. The current enterprise is hugely risky because it is based not on what has happened but on what we are told by “climate-mitigation engineers” might happen."
