Former UK chief scientist Sir David King is calling for a concerted effort to combat climate change. Especially, as it’s his area of expertise, scientific work on the scale of CERN to look for alternative energies and clean up technologies.
Sir David commented that global warming was more dangerous than terrorism whilst he was chief scientist, a comment that anyone with half a brain could see was logical and nowhere near as controversial as some made it out to be. In fact, as it affects the poorer nations more, fuelling feelings of injustice and eventually leading to overcrowding and all the problems that entails, it could be said that climate change is a major factor in increasing terrorism. Fight the cause, not the symptoms.
