Old School Economics Continues to Fuel Brave New Climate

Friday, February 4, 2011

On ABC News 24 this morning I listened to the mayor of Cairns give a report on the devastation caused by Cyclone Yasi. She finished with an advertisement-cum-plea: "Don't fly to Europe, fly to Cairns instead and spend your money here, this is the best way you can help us."

That's akin to saying this: Please continue carrying on doing the things that we know triggers worsening anthropogenic climate change (air travel; indulgence consumption), so as we can put off changing our behaviours until we absolutely no longer have the choice.
