Addressing changes in climate has no parallels with fighting a war

According to University of Austin Research Associate Todd Davidson, preparing for war on climate change means we should disregard scientific uncertainty.” click here

The push for more money to fight climate has nothing to do with science. It has everything to do with politics. I’m reminded of a famous saying from Winston Churchill which goes something like this :

“Politics is more dangerous than war. In war you only die once. But in politics you can die many times.”

This is especially true when it comes to climate. The primary reason to not ignore scientific uncertainty is that no scientist alive can show with any level of confidence that the proposed solutions to the wild exaggerated claims being made about climate change impacts will not actually do more harm to the environment and human health than good.

Anyone can make a wild claim. But making a responsible decision requires a higher standard of care.
