Ethics and Economics

I spent this past Thursday night watching Al Glore speak about global warming on C-Span. Subsequent to the Gore speech the senate committee hearing then turned into a question and answer segment. The interesting thing to me was that the majority of the senators partially to completely agreed with his position on global warming. A synopsis of the senators’ thought process was that global warming is here but only in a minor way and that humans are a part of the problem but not the entire problem.

The question that kept crossing my mind was “ If you agree with the ethics and economics why not take action”?
