Time is running out on climate denial

Post  Guest on Wed Jan 14, 2015 8:13 am





From a strictly logical perspective, it’s hard to understand how we can be doing so little to slow global warming. Greg Craven summarized why by examining the extreme possible outcomes in his viral climate ‘decision grid’ video.


In short, if we take action to slow global warming, the worst case scenario involves draconian government regulations that trigger an economic recession. If we don’t, the worst case scenario involves an economic recession too, but also a host of other global and societal catastrophes.
Although Craven doesn’t look at the probabilities of these worst case scenarios, they’re also heavily weighted towards the case for taking action to curb global warming. There are lots of options to slow global warming that don’t involve drastic government regulation, and that can even be beneficial for the economy. If we decide that we’ve gone too far in cutting carbon pollution, it’s relatively easy to scale back government policies.

We must sacrifice our Virgins to the volcano in order to appease the climate change gods

And by Virgins we mean more taxes and by volcano we mean Al gore and by climate change gods we mean mass hippy tree huggers hysterical belief that the sky is falling

There was me thinking Christians only believe in one god, even the little fluffy bunny ones.
