Knowledge puts global warming on ice

A debate on National Public Radio argued the question "Major reductions in carbon emissions are not worth the money. " http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97998613

The audience was asked before the debate whether they agreed. 16 percent agreed and 49 percent disagreed, with 35 percent undecided. So, most people disagreed that reducing carbon dioxide was not worth the money.

By the end of the debate, those who argued that reducing carbon emissions was not worth the cost had changed the most minds: 42 percent agreed "Major Reductions in Carbon Emissions Are Not Worth the Money," while 48 percent disagreed and 10 percent were still undecided.

When people understand the debate they agree that major reductions in carbon emissions are not worth the money.

Raising awareness of the global warming debate helps people better understand the trade offs involved in trying to stop the climate from changing.

The climate changes, it always has and always will. Spending trillions of dollars to try to stop that natural process wastes money and does virtually nothing to stop the climate from changing.
