How to talk about global warming, by Bill C.
Reuters reports some talking points on global warming from former prez Clinton:
You can use hope …
“I am not one of those who is pessimistic about the future of the world, assuming we get off our butts and do something about climate change in a timely fashion.”
… you can use fear …
“It’s the only thing we face today that has the power to remove the preconditions of civilized society.”
… or you can use hope and fear together …
“Climate change is more remote than terror but a more profound threat to the future of the children and the grandchildren and the great-grandchildren I hope all of you have.”
… but we’re going to need to work together.
“We can’t solve global warming or any other problem in the world you can mention that amounts to a hill of beans by ourselves.”
