… in short words, it is better to take precautionary measures no matter how unnecessary they may seem, rather than regret not having taken them at all when it becomes obvious later on that you should have. I have always been a believer in the reality of global climate change (global warming), but even if I wasn’t, I would still advocate all the governments of the world to take steps to curb it. After all, what have we got to lose? I mean, sure, as this guy pointed out, these steps cost money and could trigger a global recession… But then again, I personally would rather live through a global recession, rather than live in a world where natural catastrophes have become almost daily occurrences.
We only have one Earth… We simply can’t affort not to take good care of it!
