You can't put a gun to my head. You don't own me.

Like every "problem" a morally and logically sound solution is necessary for me to even consider it.

Are you willing to try capitalism (the real kind...no State) to see if your ideas can modify my behavior without threatening me or are you going to put a gun to my head.
IDK how capitalism would work, considering that it's one of the reasons for this.

What if I said that if we stay the course, your money would be no good anymore?

If you have one, lay it on me.
Or money out of my pocket. Bet there isnít one.

I'd do a little dance then drink a little water ala Anthony Kiedis.

Also, capitalism doesn't currently exist.

How is this going to "save" the planet?

There is plenty of time to deny, since the complete melting of the icecaps could take centuries, but more precipitation in some areas and more drought in others is affecting outdoor activities, local water supply, farming, etc.

The wallet gets relieved from your person when the gun is pointed at your head.

That's standard operating procedure.

I didn't have the heart to tell him I don't use State-issued promissory notes. I'm fully on alternative currencies.

So we are back to square one.

How do those who believe Greenland needs saving get this done without violence?

Only if other people think that they can exchange it for something they want..

Personally, I think iron ingots and traditional smithing skills would be more in demand than gold in a true EOFTWAWKI situation.

Save what? More people can live there after the ice melts. Other places like New York City, Florida, Delaware, and California's central valley will be flooded.
