Good points, caelestia, this is just a small hurdle and people know there's too many benefits to come out of this to just easily give up.
The other option and thinking outside the square is (to think small). Not sure if any of you have heard about it, and the science/technology is in very very early stages of research but molecular engineering could provide solutions for environmental clean up. So in other words, rather than going to extraordinary lengths to prevent, we could work on technologies to clean up our mess instead. But this is even a lot more sketchy than these solutions we have, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't invest in it.
