Right, hypothetically speaking....... if you were in the position where you could give the 'go ahead' for a project that would allow us to teleport anywhere in the world, whenever you wanted, consiquentally cutting carbon emissions by aroung 60% would you do it?

the only catch is that the machine that generates the power for this fantastic machine is actually fuelled by shovelling baby rabbits into an oven... cute rabbits too, they'd have to be cute or the machine wouldn't work......

so, would you still do it?

this is indeed an ethical question. but my opinion is that it is for the sake of this world that carbon emissions have to be reduced. so if cute baby rabbits are the way to do to it, and if that is the solution I would go for it.

No.
But, if lawyers could be shovelled in as fuel, I would authorise it.

so the lives of rabbits is better then that of humans. how many cute baby rabbits would represent one human being?

Wouldn't it be better to use cute baby dragons who stand in front of the machine, blowing and spitting fire without being killed themselves?
Don't tell me wouter, that dragons don't exist! I saw one today.

But the original question to be answered: NO! Carbon emissions is just one part of the environment that's getting worse. But what exactly is bad in that case: is it a problem that temperatures are higher or sea levels are higher. We human beings can cope with that.
What's worse is the fact that certain habitats like rainforests are being cut, with consequences that certain eco-systems (foodchains etc.) are being destroyed. Oh well...maybe a few rabbits...;)

Was my mother in law, roaming around your town?
So she is in Utrecht, trying to escape babysitting duty again.
Thanks for the info, Utrecht.;)

I don't like the question, not because of the rabbits, but because it focuses the attention off of the problem.

wouterrr, you take the position that since it is for the betterment of the world the machine should be used. This just leaves humans to continue with their current lifestyles at the cost of million of baby bunnies... what happens when we run out of baby bunnies?

I propose a new machine... sadly it won't have the same teleportation techniques, but it will cut carbon emissions exponentialy. As more are thrown into the machine less carbon is produced by those people... there will be some carbon offset because we are made up of carbon, but we could then use the bunny machine for that.

As an added bonus, the machine also outputs flavourful green crackers we can sell in Wal*Mart.
