Adapting to climate change

I find this post by Matt Ridley which makes interesting points that I fully support.

In my opinion, I don’t know if that defines me as a global warming skeptic, climate change prevention is not an option. It goes absolutely against all principles of human nature and psychology. Maybe it would work if we were intelligent ants but we are intelligent apes and behave like those.

But climate change adaptation that’s another story. That is exactly what we humans are good at. Facing a current and real problem and finding technical solutions to it. No one does that better than we do.

Don’t use ant’s strategies if you are ape. It is not going to work.
