Abstract

How are things these days with climate change? Let's use a medical metaphor. Non-smokers can contract lung cancer. If this disease is indicated for smokers, it would be absurd to argue its prevalence in non-smokers and, as part of the treatment, to reject the importance of stopping smoking. We know the most probable cause of current climate change and it would be equally absurd to claim that the changes are occurring independently of human activity while not trying to reduce the factors that exacerbate these changes.
