Global Warming

Interesting post by Richard Posner, guesting at Lawrence Lessig’s weblog, on global warming and why some skeptics are missing the point. This pretty much sums up my thinking of the skeptical arguments I’ve seen – yes – they all make valid points, but they don’t add up to “we don’t need to change what we’re doing”. To me, all it says is we don’t know enough to know exactly what will happen, but what we do know is that our current patterns are destructive and when taking into consideration growth, are clearly unsustainable. In other words – regardless of what we’re not sure on, we can be sure that it is in our best interests to do something sooner rather than later, to start bringing things into some semblance of balance.
