I propose a new approach to the question of anthropogenic climate change. Instead of "it's happening and if you disagree you are an idiot" vs. "it isn't happening and if you disagree you are an idiot," how about we go with "It's probably happening but it's impossible to completely absolutely prove. How about we behave as though it is, because even if it isn't the things we would do to fix it are good for the world anyways."
