Thomas Friedman: Motivating People To Do Something About Climate Change

"The question is how do we motivate people to do something about it at the scale required, when many remain skeptical or preoccupied with the demands of daily life -- and when climate scientists themselves caution that it is impossible to attribute any single weather event to climate change....Andrew Sullivan's Dish blog last week linked to a very novel approach offered by Thomas Wells, a Dutch philosopher: Since climate change and environmental degradation pit the present against the future, our generation versus those unborn, we should start by giving the future a voice in our present politics." Thomas L. Friedman in The New York Times.
