The biggest issue in my opinion, is not about whether the climate is changing or not. It's whether we do something about it or not. The time table we have to react is not as dire as some would make it out to be. The counter-issue is that some say changing over technology or investing in R and D on the large scale isn't worth it. Too much money spent over too short of a period of time. That said, why does the switch or more efficient technology and a more responsible way of using our resources have to be instantaneous. Why not set reasonable goals over a span of say 20 or 30 years? Why not involve the private sector? You can't tell me that Exxons and Shells of the world don't want something to do when the crude runs out.
