Well do you know what father. I hope you are right. I really, really do. But what if you aren't?
My thoughts on this are a) we can go about our business and not change anything and either we mess the plant up quickly, or we don't
b) or we can make a change, some huge changes even, and start treating our earth with a bit of respect, if in the future nothing happens. Then so be it, big deal. But if it does happen, then maybe we will have done something to curb the damage.
If it is all about costs, then tell me, why have electricity bills gone up drastically before the carbon tax was even implemented. If this is all about money - which it seems to be, then why aren't you jumping up and down about that?
