Part of the scientific method is accepting that a great many experiments will not be successful - meaning that you won’t get the result you need to better understand the problem at hand. That’s what’s happening to climate scientists. They have accomplished a great deal over the last decade in determining a timeline for the progression of climate change
. It’s not their fault that we don’t like the solution they proposed. We do have to switch to renewable energy to halt climate change. If we want another option, we have to give climate scientists more time and funding to find it.
Furthermore, climate change funding is as important as funding for any other issue that impacts citizens. We live on the earth. As it deteriorates because of our inaction, citizens’ quality of life will worsen. Governments must either stop climate change or deal with it when it gets worse. And prevention is usually cheaper, so the money spent today on stopping climate change is money well spent.
