Reflection Paper 3
Could you continue to drive your car if you seriously considered the possibility that you would be in an accident that killed you or one of your passengers as a serious possible outcome of your choice to drive?
Is it really the case that getting wherever you’re going more quickly is worth the risk? Or is it just that you don’t feel like it’s going to happen, your experience so far inclines you to believe it’s very unlikely, that you’re not the sort of person to whom such things happen? Or, alternatively, how many of us continue to eat meat and drive automobiles despite the fact that we know—or, at least, the scientists know—that the future consequences of climate change will be extreme and irreversible if we continue to act as if nothing’s wrong?
