Yes, the first hurdle is getting people to actually admit there is such a thing, and that it poses a major threat.
But here’s reason for guarded optimism: According to recent reports, a new technique can convert carbon dioxide back into coal. In theory, this could make huge inroads into eliminating the global dangers of greenhouse gases.
Of course, a massive undertaking would be enormously expensive. But where there’s money to be made, there’s a way.
That alone might convert some skeptics.

WHAT TO DOControlled breathing is said to help suppress the gag reflex and encourage peristalsis, the muscle contractions that move food into the stomach. Picture yourself walking barefoot down a long, stone staircase.
Inhale slowly through your nose for a count of four as you imagine how the cool stone feels underfoot.
Exhale with your lips closed for a count of eight as you imagine stepping down.
Back in December, President Trump signed the bipartisan 2018 Congressional Farm Bill, which treats hemp as an agricultural commodity and removes it from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s list of schedule 1 drugs.
However, the Farm Bill also empowers states to regulate (or ban) the production and sale of hemp within their borders.
Anyone who follows US politics will not be surprised by the inconsistency.
We all know that sodium (salt) causes water retention: think how bloated we feel after overindulging in soda, chips, or peanuts — even if we didn’t devour the entire bag. (Who, me?!)
But did you know that increasing potassium intake can help? I didn’t. Potassium has a diuretic effect that counteracts sodium. And it’s abundant in foods such as spinach, watercress, broccoli, bananas, papaya and strawberries.
p.s., If you’re making a fruit smoothie with those bananas or strawberries, use 2% Greek yogurt instead of a fat-free version. The extra fat slows the absorption of sugar, which helps keep it from being stored as body fat.
