In this lead up to the Copenhagen meetings, it seems to me that we’re seeing a distressing up-tick in activity from the climate denial crowd. You’d think we’d be well past this point now.
Some people seem prepared to take the lack of 100% agreement as a legitimate justification for inaction. That’s illogical.
I’m a parent, and I look at it this way: if, as a parent, someone said to you that there was an 80% chance of something terrible happening to your child if we failed to take some course of action, would you tell them to come back when they were 90% or 100% certain?
