A few months ago, I opined about the whole global warming issue in this post. I sub-divided the big picture into 5 smaller questions:
1. Is it real? (Yes.)
2. Is it caused by human activity? (Yes.)
3. Is it bad? (Yes.)
4. Can we fix it? (Yes.)
5. How/when should we fix it? (Soon.)
Then, yesterday, I watched a very thought-provoking presentation on Larry Lessig’s blog about why taxpayers should fund election campaigns. You can go watch it, but beware, it’s about 40 minutes long.
The spooky part was that in the section where he talks about Al Gore’s campaign against global warming, he shows this quote:
I have never seen An Inconvenient Truth. But if you switch points 4 and 5, I duplicated Mr. Gore’s asssessment of the climate change situation almost verbatim. As I said in my last post, just drop by the Nobel Prize any day next week.
