Wrong question asked

Print Article

Regarding the recent heated exchanges on climate change, I think the wrong question is being asked. It should NOT be, “Who is right?”; rather, it should be, “What if you are wrong?” If the climate change deniers are wrong and we make little or no efforts to minimize its effects, the world faces the maximum risk — oceans will continue to rise, weather extremes will become common place, and famine and diaspora will become common. If the climate change advocates are wrong but we make the efforts they advocated, the world will face minimum risk and will benefit from cleaner air and water and better energy technology.
