The climate crisis debate can be divided into two main camps. The first group argues that the global climate crisis is human induced and we must convert to a renewable energy economy. The other group argues that the climate crisis doesn’t exist and we should continue “business as usual” in our use of fossil fuels. The debate can be simplified into “what happens if I am right and you are wrong vs. if you are right and I am wrong?”

If the argument that climate change is a serious problem turns out to be wrong and we convert to renewable energy sources there will be positive benefits.

1. We will no longer be dependent on foreign oil. Thus we will no longer be sending billions of dollars overseas for energy.

2. It will create a new generation of jobs to build and maintain wind turbines, solar panels, etc.

3. The planet will be more sustainable.

4. The air and water will be cleaner.
