There are always the naysayers who deny that global warming is taking place and then there are others who say we can always address this issue later. The determining factor, too often, is the cost, and the question becomes, to pay later or not to pay? The dollar is the guiding force and reality be damned.
Forget that glaciers are melting at an accelerated rate. Forget that rising sea levels are endangering low level coastal areas right here in this country as well as around the world. Forget that storm patterns have been changing and becoming fiercer, hurricanes and tornadoes more frequent and more violent. Forget that droughts are now more prolonged and wide spread, reducing our food supplies as the population of the world is expected to double by the end of this century.
