Comments on: Climate change and economy — politicians need courage http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2008/06/25/climate-change-and-economy-politicians-need-courage/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: KML http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2008/06/25/climate-change-and-economy-politicians-need-courage/comment-page-1/#comment-335628 Tue, 08 Jul 2008 04:27:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2008/06/25/climate-change-and-economy-politicians-need-courage/#comment-335628 I would rather say, politicians need to find their own directions, which may benefit climate change fighting, but may not benefit their personal advances. It’s a dilemma, indeed.

I’m always concerned if politicians get involved because their decisions usually have negative effects on the poorer people.

In comparison to people like Al Gore, Kennedy’s etc who can just pay more to retain the life style of the rich and famous.For example, Gore flies in a private jet and then buys GHG credits from his organization. No life style change is required where those who don’t have much have to decide between food or a cold house in the winter.

He might get the Brit to talk to Brazil’s head of energy and get some pointers on how to create energy from waste. I suggest Brazil because they’re the most ingenious and forward thinking people about the environment that I know.
