Better to be safe than sorry when much of the world’s scientific community says we are sending the planet down the dunny by spewing ridiculous amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. If we can’t do better than to continue burning the Earth’s fossil fuel deposits when alternatives not only exist, but are being improved at a furious pace, we’re not trying.
Still, it’s hard not to be mildly amused when the cracking up of the Wilkins ice bridge in Antarctica earns worldwide front-page screamers, complete with full-colour pictures from space, while the fact that the extent of Antarctic sea ice has increased at a rate of 100,000 square kilometres a decade since the 1970s gets a column on the inside pages. It is as if we WANT to embrace bad news rather than consider that it is not the whole story.
