The fatal flaw in the precautionary case for Kyoto – as in environmental advocacy generally – is its complete onesidedness. Environmentalists demand assurances of no harm only with respect to actions that government might regulate, never with respect to government regulation itself. But government intervention frequently boomerangs, creating the very risks that precautionists deem intolerable. . . . So here is a precautionary argument against the Kyoto Protocol. . . . Until the Kyoto Protocol is proved to be safe, we should oppose it. -- Marlo Lewis, ‘Why Kyoto Is Not an Insurance Policy’, in The Kyoto Protocol, op.
cit., pp. 79–80.
Краткий перевод для тех, кто не владеет: Пока не доказано, что Киотский протокол полностью безопасен, не нужно его принимать! Гениально! Я просто расцеловать готов этого парня (not gay)!
