Examining the Ultimate Solution to Climate Change | The Secular Jurist

How would you solve climate change? Robert A. Vella offers an intriguing thought experiment that explores one possible solution to our present climate crisis. It will blow your mind!

“You are the absolute ruler of the world, the unchallengeable behind-closed-doors sovereign over all things human. The course and fate of modern civilization rests in your hands. You must neither be moral nor immoral, but amoral. Your decisions must be based exclusively on emotionless objectivity. However, your choices are constrained by one predominant priority — to serve and support the globalized socioeconomic system of free market capitalism. All other considerations must be subordinate to it regardless of their circumstances or consequences…” ~ Robert A. Vella

    JoAnn, well that was interesting. When I first saw your question, I was more consumed by naysayers who portray the question as either jobs or the environment, when that does a disservice to the complex equation. The data based answer is jobs and the environment.

    I try to diffuse arguments by telling people I am a tree hugger and a capitalist. Investing in our environment and renewable energy actually has a better long term ROI. So, I think we need to push these issues. And, I need not check my morality at the door. Keith

    Thanks, JoAnn. It blew my mind writing it too!

      I bet it did. Really well done, Robert. May we expect more thought experiments from you?

        In a male sort of way, it was almost like giving birth. It might be another 9 months or so before I write another – lol! But seriously, thanks very much for the encouragement – I really do appreciate it. 🙂

        Then I will be patient. Meanwhile, be sure to put your feet up. 🙂

        Good advice, thanks – lol!

    Isn’t this what is happening already? Capitalism IS the problem.

      Thank you for saying it. I think so, too. But many would deny that (along with climate change), without really thinking about it. This thought experiment is for them.
