+1 on population reduction (by peaceful means)
Although there is turbulence introduced by wind farms, it is a drop in the bucket compared with the effects from massive amounts of deforestation and infrastructure we has humans have inflicted on our environment; it is but a small counterweight relative to the rest. I would rather support the industry than carbon-based energy sources. Hydro, which appears as "free" energy is massively harmful to the environment as well, by drowning meadows, by eliminating natural fish migration, by withholding sediments which replenish estuaries, and so much more...
We could be better served by utilizing undersea currents and wave technology with less dramatic effects upon flora and fauna. We need to listen more to what Nature is doing and try to emulate it in a manner that is cooperative and symbiotic with our shared world.
We need to stop building cities below floodplains and on sinking estuaries. Painful as it sounds, I actually think we should divert Mississippi sediments into the lower wards and fill them in. Then put trees on top, or farm it.
There is no solution for tornadoes, except an above-ground bunker. That, or replant the old forest we cut down; that might slow down the ground-effect. Though I donâ€™t think that will help in the case of hurricanes, volcanoes, or earthquakes; MoaBs maybe, but not trees, no.
