"To assume that it is a problem is to assume that the state of Earth's climate today is the optimal climate, the best climate that we could have or ever have had and that we need to take steps to make sure that it doesn't change," Griffin said. "I guess I would ask which human beings — where and when — are to be accorded the privilege of deciding that this particular climate that we have right here today, right now is the best climate for all other human beings. I think that's a rather arrogant position for people to take."I think that's one of the most brilliant statements about this controversy ever made. Do we trust my wife (who is always cold) to set the AC, or do we trust me (the fat guy who gets hot when the temp is above 72) to set the AC?
And that's just one house -- do we trust my wife to set the thermostat for your house? Or for the house of your grandchildren who aren't born yet? Sheesh.
