A "frame" likely to generate consensus that climate change is not happening (and/or that geoengineering is safe)

Interesting piece, my guess is that this idea could actually end polarization over climate change -- by furnishing egalitarians and hierarchs alike strong emotional motivation to deny there's any danger after all! 

Also, although the author maintains that engineering humans is "safer" than geoengineering, my guess is that people would see geoengineering itself as less risky when they consider it in relation to "human engineering" than when they consider it on its own  -- precisely b/c human engineering is pretty much the creepiest thing that anyone can imagine.

Which isn't to say the author's argument is wrong on the merits!
