More Important than Life Itself

Even a child understands that you can’t run into a furiously burning house to retrieve a painting. It does not matter how much it costs. You can’t do it and even if you could, it would not be worth sacrificing your life in the attempt. Yet only one person is a thousand seems to understand the same principle also applies to global warming. Most people are quite happy to sacrifice their lives and the lives of their children and grandchildren for some relatively trivia economic advantage. They are behaving like the passengers on the Titanic who refused to take action to save themselves because they had convinced themselves it was impossible for anything terrible to happen to them and because taking such action would have been inconvenient.
