Could we use a computer model to see the best way to reverse environmental damage?

    Not a computer model so much as a model in general — when we talk about models in any science, its all done on computers. The equations are too lengthy and numerous for there to be any other way. Still, though, our knowledge and computing power don’t yet give us the power to measure precisely over the course of days or weeks (weather) let alone the long-term. Its also important to note that there is a fair consensus on what factors need to change to prevent or reduce environmental damage (emissions, extinction, consumption of finite resources). The qualitative methods for achieving those ends are not the realm of computers (rather, the realm of experts and academics), and the degree to which changes in the quanitifiable will affect the environment is much to taxing a question to ask in detail.
