Gina McCarthy Sees Black and White, I See Red
http://www.vermontbiz.com/news/2017/december/07/dont-despair-get-work-says-former-epa-chief-gina-mccarthy “Climate change is happening,” Gina McCarthy said, “We have to stop debating the science.” While Gina sees black and white, I see red.
The McCarthy lecture seems just too silo-thinking, too simplistic, too parochial, and too eco-religious for an adult audience. Where is the discussion about national and international economic development, the importance of energy efficiency, the state of emission reduction strategies, the growing benefits of the Internet of Things, or other significant technological advancements.
While the debate about climate and science must continue to advance our understanding of a very complex planet, the environmental importance of clean water, good sanitation, domicile ventilation, reliable electricity, and modern health care to local populations in poorer countries in Asia and Africa is ignored.
