The New Climate Game

Recommended Posts

Nonsense. You know perfectly well I support far more public participation in democracy with more referendums. I've repeatedly pointed at the issue of taking action on AGW in particular should be put to a referendum.

are you serious?...many who would vote have no more than a grade 12 education that was completed 50-60 yrs ago...many who have little understanding of the simplest science...many who believe in alien abductions, aliens built the pyramids, secret alien technology from area 51...many who think Anthony Watts or Christopher broker are real scientists...the many who believe every issue they disagree with is the result of some global leftist/socialist/ marxist/commie conspiracy...you want those people to have a say in something that could effect the future of the entire planet....

leave it in the hands of experts and those we elect to make those decisions...

I guess you mean the same experts that outlawed DDT and 10's of millions of people died as a result.....or maybe those experts that said H1N1 would kill 10,000 people in Canada. Seems to me those high-school citizens knew a thing or two about common sense.

Outlawing DDT was stupid but you can't say anything when it comes to H1N1 because the response was so fast, it could have been much worse than it was.

Also I bet they were different experts and outlawing DDT had more to do with public preassure and politicians than it did with scientists.

You mean...

leave it in the hands of experts and those we elect to "dictate" those decisions...

An "election" is a sort of referendum. Essentially you are leading us to the position that it should not be left to the idiotic public to elect the right people.

You would think DDT would be re-instated as an effective tool against mosquito borne illnesses.
