This time the environmentalists turn on themselves. Serious charges though they are, the ultimate question in the fallout from the climate science email, the Himalayan glaciers, is the drumbeat: What are we going to do about Climate Change? The answer is not ‘nothing.’
There’s not only overwhelming and compelling evidence that the planet is warming up and nearing tipping points from which there is not turning back to a climate we grew up in, making wholesale changing to curb Climate Change is reasonable assumption that a reasonable people should adopt.
If you rapidly change the human population to 6 billion people, who drive millions of greenhouse gas emitting gas into the atmosphere, and create an extinction event equal to the five other great extinction events, only a lot quicker, then it is a reasonable assumption that we have to change our collective behavior towards the planet to ensure our way of live.
Pointing fingers about every little fact, every indictment, the blame game, and creating a stalemate in the face of a true environmental crisis won’t due. We had better start doing something about Climate Change quickly, or we’ll be doing a whole lot more fruitless squabbling as we rearrange the chairs on the Titanic of Climate Change.
The Wrong Kind of Green "Why did America's leading environmental groups jet to Copenhagen and lobby for policies that will lead to the faster death of the rainforests--and runaway global warming?
