Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a note on Facebook on Monday.
He made a very good point about climate change and renewable energy: It really doesn’t matter what you believe. Here is what he said.
There are two doors. Behind Door Number One is a completely sealed room, with a regular, gasoline-fueled car. Behind Door Number Two is an identical, completely sealed room, with an electric car. Both engines are running full blast.
I want you to pick a door to open, and enter the room and shut the door behind you. You have to stay in the room you choose for one hour. You cannot turn off the engine. You do not get a gas mask.
I’m guessing you chose the Door Number Two, with the electric car, right? Door number one is a fatal choice – who would ever want to breathe those fumes?
It’s a strong point, but even more importantly, it’s a bipartisan point.
Here is the real deal. You pick a door and we agree to never argue about climate change again. Agreed?
