Question 33 - Paragraph Comprehension Practice Test for the ASVAB

The author of the passage would probably support ____.

Mainstream news reports, that focus on averting global warming, have asked questions such as “ How much will this cost?” and “How much will we have to cut back on economic growth?” Such irresponsible and naive questions highlight the scale of self-interests and ignorance that dominate national debate. If we are not part of the solution (attempting to seriously reduce carbon emissions), then we are part of the problem (ignoring the serious consequences of global warming). Whatever the ‘costs’ are to save the planet, this will be our greatest challenge and our greatest investment and, if we fail in this task, then we will perish.
