Al Gore Refuses To Dignify Debate: “It’s Not A Matter Of Theory”


With respect to you: it’s not simply a question of not believing in Climate Change – it’s quite possible to accept it as existing, and accept a human component in it, but to question the proposed political solutions.

All choices involve costs; simply ignoring the possibility of Climate Change could certainly impose one set of costs on us all; but preventing Third World countries from industrialising on their own timetables could impose another set of costs on them. Possibly those costs would be far higher for them relatively speaking, in terms of lost revenue and resources for education, infrastructure, health care etc.

That’s the extreme example, but it is valid to debate whether we wish to impose similar costs on ourselves, for a proposed solution that we don’t know will work effectively for the costs it will impose.
