of the environment. Here, the "precautionary ethic" applies: those who advance a certain cause or ideology have the ethical responsibility to insure, before the fact, that their advocacy will not harm anyone--that precautions are in place. We do this with our children; why not for our children when it comes to the world in which they and their children will live?

mrinbetween is inbetween science and ideology: there is a major and significant difference between "weather" and "climate." Climate change is for real, whether you think that it is man-caused or not (I assume from your glib remark that you don't see any effect of the industrial revolution and modern pollution on the environment.) Those who deny man's role in global warming ignore all science to the contrary (except for those few scientists who 'get off' being iconoclasts and whose colleagues pay them little respect). The same ideology, usually religious, would have us believe that man and dinosaurs lived at the same time, and would have us ignore 100% of the empirical evidence of paleontology, not to mention all of accepted biology. The earth is a big place, and what happens (or not) in the short-run, here or there, is not evidence against global warming. But we can expect that our children and grandchildren will regret the ideology that resists man's despoiling
