I admit it - I get bored by the idea of Global Warming. For that reason I don't keep up with it. I think the whole idea is a non-starter, because people have a tough time relating to such a massive issue. My points are really as follows..... I don't dispute Global Warming. I also don't confirm it. I think a lot of people feel the same way. For that reason alone, it seems like a bad cart to hitch ones horse up to. I'm told that if it does exist, it will take decades of reversal to change it. In other words, not during my lifetime. That automatically means it moves down my priority list. Ok, so let's assume it does exist. Then a lot of other questions arise - like is it good or is it bad and does it even hold a candle to the normal heating and cooling cycles of the earth? As I have mentioned before, we are likely to address these issues for decades, and then one Volcano will erupt and change the earths climate more than we did! Longer summers will make for better crops in the north here. Ski areas will suffer. Which is more important in the total scheme of things? Ok, so by now you are thinking I am a pessimist. No, the answer to that is that I am a Marketer. A sales person at heart. As such, I think we can "sell" changes in behavior much easier by stressing the IMMEDIATE results of our actions. If we talk about Acid Rain, Water and Air Pollution, Traffic, National Security, Quality of Life and the many other issues that affect the SAME courses of action, I think Americans may come along for the ride. We can also add JOBS to that, because a new economy based on efficiency and renewables would add a number of skilled workers to the payroll. In short, you will never hear me talk other than jokingly about Global Warming - not because I think it's not true, but because I think it is Pie in the Sky compared to many issues which can drive people to change.
