Stephen Fry on Global Warming

Another great “blessay” from Stephen Fry, this time on the topic of Global Warming, inspired by an argument he had with an American on the subject.

Interestingly his take on why we should be behaving as if Global Warming is a reality, essentially the same principle as Pascal’s Wager, is much the same argument that I always come back to – if we behave as if Global Warming is a reality and we’re wrong we’ll all look a bit stupid, but if we act as if Global Warming does not exist, and it does, then the consequences are a lot worse.

Needless to say Stephen Fry puts it a lot more eloquently than me!
