Imagine that you have consulted 100 doctors, 97 of them have diagnosed you with cancer and the other 3 said there’s nothing wrong with you.
You decide to side with the 3 doctors who told you nothing is wrong and refuse treatment although 97 of the doctors diagnosed the cancer as malignant and spreading. Your main rationale for this decision is that the treatment will be too costly.
This is a very simple analogy for climate change deniers. 97% of scientists agree with climate change, 3% say nothing is wrong.
This is the approach our leaders are using in the parliament to play down the cause of this cancer, on the grounds that it will be too costly to address it. And it is only because they have the numbers in parliament that coal will continue to be forced down our throats.
Trump and Turnbull are touted as successful business men who have accumulated millions and billions of the folding stuff and are best placed as leaders to ensure our economies maintain their prosperity, with coal leading the way.
Can anyone imagine a business owner not having contingency plans for the successful running of a business?
That is the case with these two master businessmen, Trump and Turnbull. They have no contingency plan should they be proved wrong on climate change. They have no Plan B, on a business venture that is considered by 97% of the world’s experts, to fail. Let’s not even consider Plan C or Plan D.
It’s time to call out Trump and Turnbull and ask, very loudly, “WHAT IS YOUR PLAN B, if and when the planet starts to fry?” What is your renewable energy policy?
We need to know what Plan B is if we continue down the coal path, because what is the point of saving a few dollars if we all end up frying?
Like what we do at The AIMN?
