Liked the reasoning behind what former Congressman Inglis is trying to convey. Climate Change has become a topic of concern and has the potential, even in this election to swing votes and even change the entire outcome. His idea however raises some alarms due to the level at which certain things are increasing. He mentions that gas prices/energy cost would go up. Well no one as of now wants to hear anything going up, especially gas prices, but then his counter argument is that we are already "paying at the pump" with our lives by dying at an earlier age. I don''t know if the two can be related although I do see what he's to say. Again for my point of view it looks like another politician attempting to steal votes and win elections then actually getting to the root of the problem. I'll give him credit he did attempt to challenge the issue, It was more though for votes then for the planet and human civilization. He had valid points just not valid enough for me. Great piece though.
