For the believers in climate catastrophism there is a more apt analogy. Hitler was able to bypass the defenses by attacking through Belgium. Climate emissions reduction policies will only be implemented by some rich countries, whilst emissions will continue to rise in the developing world where the majority of the world’s population live. If folks were really serious about reducing emissions, rather than pandering to ideologues, they would be talking about emission reduction targets for all countries . But then any sensible Governments would fail to turn up at the talks.
Imagine if your car’s engine oil light came on, and you took it into the mechanic. His version of anti-histamine would be to remove the light bulb, so you don’t see the light any more, WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE CAUSE. What would happen? Your car would run out of oil, the engine would seize up and you would have to spend $1000’s on repairs. This is absolutely unacceptable as a solution. Yet, we have put up with it for many years with our allergy symptoms (even when they are severe). We spend hundreds or thousands a year individually seeking relief and treatment for chronic allergic rhinosinusitis.
