Decisive Days for World Lie Ahead
My feeling on the nay sayers is that they are simply choosing not to believe because it will affect their economic status and ability to consume at breakneck speed as the world has for the last half century. If the doom merchants are wrong the world will continue to continue, but if the nay sayers are wrong they are condemning future generations to oblivion. Surely too big a risk to take? As the Guardian editorial, shared with 55 other world newspapers, says 'we can go into extra time but we can't afford a replay.' The stark fact is there can be no replay
On the contrary. When your opponents are caught lying - and manipulating data in such a way is lying in any terms - then it strengthens your resolve and your arguments.
"If the doom merchants are wrong the world will continue to continue, but if the nay sayers are wrong they are condemning future generations to oblivion".
On the contrary. If the eco-fundamentalists are wrong, they will joyfully bankrupt our countries - most Green movements have been campaigning for zero growth for years in any case - and consign many of our young people to a life of hard work and miserable living standards.
Spelt out in these terms, it is little wonder parties with such extreme environmentalist agendas have never polled seriously in any meaningful election in the UK.
So we can wait then for the future, it's OK then.
Copenhagen says flying is a big cause of the problems, but hell brown wants to spy on everyone now using satellites, but will not move an inch on flying.
I cannot be bothered really this looks like another excuse to put a tax on us all.
Yes Climate is serious sadly governments are not
USA we will only cut back when it suits them, this conference used 140 jets, 120 cars, and hundreds of security if not thousands all driving lorries cars trucks, but hell why are we not having conference through the use of the Internet for god sake.
