Arrgh, Disaster looms!
“Arrgh, Disaster looms!”
Well that will push people along and it is a laudable idea to get people to do good, but the problem with it is that it tacitly makes the argument that doing all the things we do is OK so long as the consequence is that we do not cause famine, total breakdown, etc.
I have a slightly different argument on the ‘why’ of how we should proceed, which is this:
There may be room for argument about the effect that man is having on global warming. There may even be room for argument about whether we are experiencing global warming as anything other than a blip in the graph.
What is not in doubt is that we are raping this planet with pollution.
So I say don’t let arguments about global warming be a red herring to deflect from the fact that we should clean up the mess we are making.
It doesn’t or shouldn’t need the justification that we are facing disaster.
A tree does not need to justify its existence.
We do however need to justify destroying it, whether or not at some point down the road the fallen tree will get its innocent revenge by releasing CO2 and killing the planet.
