Steve Zwick tells us that those of us who disagree with the need for all out action on climate change should be willing to take him up on his suggestion.
For, as he says:
If the shirkers and deniers actually believe their propaganda, they’ll go along with this – because they only have to pay if they’re wrong and 98% of all climate scientists are right.
The actual suggestion he makes is slightly hair raising:
We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn until the innocent are rescued. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices.
They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?
But I’m still happy to take the offer with that already mentioned condition. Apologies, but this will take a moment to explain.
As it happens I don’t “deny” climate change. Nor do I even deny that it’s us human beings causing it. I have my concerns about the accuracy of some of the science, this is true. Specifically, I’m deeply unconvinced that anyone at all really knows what is the summation of all feedbacks.
But I still deny that we need to do very much about it all. So in that sense we can indeed call me a denier. Specifically, I most certainly deny that most of the things that we are told we must do about climate change are either necessary or desirable.
