Climate change, the uncertainty of existence, and the liberal longing for universal death

As a follow up to the discussion, “The escape from uncertainty: a theory of liberalism,” which is still continuing, I wrote to Kristor:

Talk about trying to end uncertainty, what is the anti climate change movement about? Its assumption is that the climate is not supposed to change! The climate is always supposed to be the same! If it does change, this is a horrible horrible thing. Climate is not supposed to change, it’s supposed to stay the same always. Therefore government has an obligation to prevent climate change. Then we will live again in a stable, secure, certain world.

See Kristor’s response.
