Before we rush to adopt Global Warming Policies, we should stop to consider the consequences of blithely giving these policies such a central position in our lives.

I've always known that.

Wait..., what? No!!!

People who do not want to consider the consequences should post on that ---> side ;)

Side: I've always known that.

Yeah, it would suck if it was all a hoax and we created a better world for nothing.

Side: I've always known that.

You are making an assumption that these policies will create a better world. I propose we consider the consequences of those policies to make sure that they will in fact create a better world. I don't think we should base policy on cute sound bites ;)

Side: I've always known that.

OK, let's do that. Maybe the facts will show that recycling causes leprosy.

Calling it an assumption is kind of misleading I think. Global warming is projected to have major consequences for feed supply and living space. To promote a business-as-usual attitude is to promote famine and slums. It requires fairly simple reasoning to discover that mitigation of climate change will in fact create a better world; we won't have to adapt as much as we would have to, were we to do nothing to prevent crisis.

It's not really a matter of rhetoric. It's a matter of scientific work and absolutely trivial ethical principles.

it is a hoax. .

Yeah, global warming can be completely reversed with hydrogen peroxide.

Global warming is a proven fraud. We don't need any Global Warming Policies. Carbon levels are the lowest they've ever been.

Side: I've always known that.

Yeah I understand that, it still does not mean that we are not responsible for climate change!

Side: I've always known that.

But even if we are responsible for climate change, there's little incentive to change ;)

Side: I've always known that.

Hey, this looks familiar!

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Damn it! ;)

Isn't this the side where the people who are generally for abortion would also be? Isn't getting an abortion usually following not considering the consequences of not using protection. I don't know if any consequences will be considered in the Global Warming policies either.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Which are?

(Healthier way of life in general- less pollution from transport, less photochemical smog, less bronchitis, less acid rain, more advancement in renewable fuel technologies...)

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

But have you considered the potential down sides to those policies?

Economic downturn for example?

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

That will only happen due to bad communication and greed.

great so now as well as getting sun-burnt because of the "hole" in the ozone layer above my head, caused by the worlds use of CFC's, I now have to wait as the environment around me deteriorates because of climate change.

We can have an affect on the globe if you don't believe me come to New Zealand and go out in the summer without protection from the sun... Why does this country have such hight rates of skin cancer???? oh that's right because the sun is so strong because of the thinness of the ozone layer above it.

and now because we are failing to do something about the global climate change (its not just warming). later on in my life I can starve to death because the crops we depend on won't grow because the insects that pollinated them died.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

We all have to die someday of something. What difference does it make what we die of and when ;)

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!
