A video: Why Politicians May Not Rely On Their Own Uninformed Opinion On Climate Change Science.

https://ethicsandclimate.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/slide4.jpgThis 11 minute video examines why politicians, unlike many ordinary citizens,  may not rely upon their own uninformed opinion on climate change science as a basis for refusing to support climate change policies. The video argues that politicians have responsibilities that ordinary citizens do not have to protect others from harms that their constituents are causing others.

  1. Thank you for this presentation.

    I can understand denial and avoiding facing harsh reality. However, when politicians lie and mass media intentionally misdirects this amounts to criminal behavior by sociopaths. Rubio and Inhoffe should be castigated.

  2. A very good video. Unfortunately the background music is so loud at times it is not possible to listen to what some say.

    I fully agree that the press should ask these questions and record what the politicians say and give wide publicity to their answers.
