I say we just detonate a bunch of nuclear weapons and create a nuclear winter that would cancel out global warming.

Kombaticus, you fool! A far more efficient and safer way of handling global warming would be to dump a giant ice cube into the ocean every year! Only the ice cube needs to be bigger every time we need it, thus ending global warming once and for all.
I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

i think the idea of a solar pannel would be great. soon or later we will have to implement it.

It would be useful as far as controlling the actual rise in temperature, but long term, we would still need to address the root cause: greenhouse gasses. It would be much better to have the climate naturally in equilibrium. Plus, a sun shade wouldn't address the issue of ocean acidification, so it's not going to be the ultimate solution.

Before building a giant space-mirror, we should set our sights on something more feasible, like air filters. Line solar/wind-powered filters along the sides of highways, soaking up exhaust from the cars and surrounding atmosphere. Maybe even make some flying air filters so they can cover more ground. (I don't know how they would be designed, I'm an animator not an industrial designer). Maybe attach wind-powered air filters to weather balloons?
