This is a serious question and the answer is all but clear.

A metaphor may help: You are in a house. Somewhere there must be fire. The
smoke becomes thinker and thinker. There is no way just to leave the house
and you don't know how to easily stop the burning. Will you stop breezing?
Of course not. You know that the cause is a fire somewhere, yet you will
do all sorts of 'funny' things in order to survive: Open a window, seal
doors... contraproductive to attack the fire and still necessary to ensure
as long as possible short term survival.

Liebe Gruesse,
