As I'm just always impressed with the hubris of human beings on the amount of control or the managing of climate.

And people were sure we could never pollute rivers and oceans because, well, you know, they are just so big.

And people denied that dumping smokestack effluent into the air would matter, at least until it went dark at noon in Pittsburgh. How could that be? "The air" is huge, isn't it?

Well now it isn't particulate matter, it's smaller than that, up higher, and causing effects that are entirely predictable, even if less visible to the naked eye. And people are sure it couldn't be so, because ... they were so wrong about all the other times when they were sure it couldn't be so.
