The Climate is Changing
If you watched the debate on Friday, you didn’t see people who’ve thought hard about a crucial issue, and are trying to do the right thing. What you saw, instead, were people who show no sign of being interested in the truth. They don’t like the political and policy implications of climate change, so they’ve decided not to believe in it — and they’ll grab any argument, no matter how disreputable, that feeds their denial.
As Krugman implies, a lack of logic and reason to understand things may lead to unnecessary deaths. But this time the possible scale is larger than anything we've ever seen.
