The science is in and our home is warming at an ever-increasing rate. I for one believe that the science is right and if the predictions are true (I believe they are) the consequences for me are inconsequential but my grandchildren and future mankind will face dire outcome.
The whole crux of the Hi-Lites article was focused on economy (money), as if this is the only parameter worth consideration. I would suggest that the well being of our grandchildren should be of greater importance. If one would look at their monthly billing, a very small portion is devoted to environmental compliance. Would a few cents or even a few dollars more be a burden when better health is the reward?
I agree with Ms. Scott that action is always necessary and that people should be more involved with our representatives and regulators. However, good judgment cannot be derived when only a narrow perspective is the knowledge base.
