Global Warming Quote

Moral problem or engineering problem?

"The trouble with the global warming debate is that it has become a moral crusade when it's really an engineering problem. The inconvenient truth is that if we don't solve the engineering problem, we're helpless."
— Robert J. Samuelson, Washington Post July 5, 2006 Page A13

No, I am still not convinced that the evidence shows anything unusual in the weather.

But if we did treat it an an engineering problem, we could start judging the costs of the tradeoffs instead of promising a possible reduction in the rate of global warming at a catastrophic economic cost.
