I am not saying it is not a valid issue. But… When we look at return on investment and the alternative issues facing us I think it is our responsibility to take a step back and analyze how we can actually make a difference.
When I hear people throw out blanket statements about climate change and the virtues of the Kyoto Protocol, my gut reactions is skepticism. How many people out there can actually tell me what the Kyoto Protocol would actually do in hard numbers? What would the result be? Can anyone tell me?
What if we focused on clean drinking water with the same slick media hype? What about eradicating malaria? How many lives could we save if we could get food to the people that need it?
How many people would be saved now and in the near future if we focused on prescient issues? How many people would be saved if we all pulled together and slowed global warming by lowering the projected trend by 0.07°C in 2050?
Left or Right it don’t matter, look at the money and where it will be used to greatter effect…
