So who is right or wrong? I don’t know and I don’t care. I’m not a scientist and even if I read all the research I’ll still only ever be speculating with my view. I realised a while ago that I’m neither a sceptic nor a supporter. I’m a realist. What I care about is the type of future my kids will have. So, not surprisingly, I am most interested in risk mitigation and the avoidance of a doomsday scenario.
In the end with issues of this magnitude the question of who is right or wrong is immaterial. What matters most is the answer to two simple questions. What if you’re wrong? And if you are wrong can you live with the consequences? These questions force deliberations to focus not on political agendas or ingrained prejudices but the risk management of each possible scenario.
