Within the first a part of a brand new video sequence, I give an define of Chapter One in all Local weather Change Reconsidered II: Fossil Fuels, which covers environmental economics. I clarify the position of economics in defending the atmosphere. In a nutshell, it’s this: financial prosperity offers people the time to care concerning the atmosphere. In any other case it’s only a day-to-day battle for survival. As Dr. John Christy put it:
“We aren’t morally dangerous folks for taking carbon and turning it into the power that gives life to humanity in a world that will in any other case be brutal,”
“Quite the opposite, we’re good folks for doing so.”
“With out power, life is brutal and brief.”
By the best way, that is the very first video manufacturing within the new broadcast video studio I setup for Heartland in Chicago about two weeks in the past. From it, reside streaming to the online, main networks, and video manufacturing can be potential. Completely donated tools; no “huge oil” or political funds have been used. Because it was a piece week for me after we did this primary take a look at, I didn’t have a swimsuit, costume shirt, and tie. So, you’ll need to accept my polo shirt. 😉
