Note: This is great, but also another ironic band-aid. Like trying to stop an exploding dam by sticking your finger in this or that new hole.
We exert more energy in trying to stop the global warming that our energy has mainly caused. Like opening up the melted Arctic to ships and oil rigs, to create more CO2 - which ironically helps cool that region a little, as revealed in recent report).
Alternately, our expanding population of top-heavy meat-eaters creates giant hog manufacturing farms, which contribute to global warming and pollution, while it is Nature, evoked by our climate-tampering, that comes back to fight us, ironically, by washing all that into our rivers, etc., poisoning us.
We ironically try to stop up Nature, Nature ironically tries to stomp us out, caused by our own global warming. Need I mention that the rest of species are also in peril because of this(?)

Climate change modifies the composition of reefs - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180920101110.htm
"Corals devastated by climate change are being replaced naturally by other species such as gorgonians, which are less efficient in acting as a carbon sink. A study has analyzes for the first time why gorgonians are more resistant than corals to human impacts and global climate change. "
Glacial engineering could limit sea-level rise, if we get our emissions under control - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180920102138.htm
"Targeted engineering projects to hold off glacier melting could slow down ice-sheet collapse and limit sea-level rise, according to a new study. While an intervention similar in size to existing large civil engineering projects could only have a 30 percent chance of success, a larger project would have better odds of holding off ice-sheet collapse. But the researchers caution that reducing emissions still remains key to stopping climate change and its dramatic effects. "
