It is the safer bet to act as if anthropogenic global warming is an indisputable fact even if you think otherwise. That being said, what does the individual do other than conserve energy (and use public transportation or a gas efficient car if you can afford one) and donate money or time to stop deforestation?

The safest bet is to wait.

The longer we wait the cheaper and more effective climate control and mitigation technology becomes. Such is the pace of technological progress.



In comparison, the AGW proponent's efforts to cripple our energy use will cost far more in economic damages than the cost of mitigation down the road.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
