There is already experimental evidence that some people respond to reminders of death by increasing consumption.

Well, yes, of course, a reminder of the inevitability of death is indeed likely to depress the desire to save for the long term. Hardly surprising really.

  2. How about this one….

    “The Pew report found that people over 65 are much more likely than the rest of the population to deny that there is solid evidence that the earth is warming, that it’s caused by humans, or that it’s a serious problem. This chimes with my own experience. Almost all my fiercest arguments over climate change, both in print and in person, have been with people in their 60s or 70s. Why might this be?”

    People who have lived a long time can’t be fooled into thinking the climate has changed significantly over thier lifetimes.
