Climate destablization

December 29, 2007 at 1:00 am 3 comments

I was ferreting around YouTube last week and came across this video. Could be good to show to kids to easily explain what climate change (or the better term, climate destablization) is all about. Seems the video was made by a high school teacher in the US and it’s called How it All Ends.

There’s also a related video called How it All Ends: Index, which outlines an expansion pack of videos you can look up. Frankly, I’d start with this video. He even covers arguments for skeptics.

Just shows you what one passionate person can do.

    Just one problem with his argument: it’s wrong. For precisely the same reasons that Pascal’s Wager are wrong. He assumes that ‘doing something’ implies that we do the //right// thing. Without foreknowledge of what is the //right// thing, any actions we undertake are a greater risk than simply doing nothing, and holding the excess funds as reserve for when things go bad.

    Atheist:
    You act as if our choices of what to do are purely a matter of random chance, so that we’re just as likely to do harm as to do good. That’s just plain silly. If that reasoning made sense, nobody would ever do anything in anticipation of future dangers or opportunities.

    Who says doing something ‘wrong’ will be more damaging than nothing at all? Where is your scientific basis for that statement? If we do something and it doesn’t work, we lose money. If we do something and it does work, we save humanity.
