Krugman in NYTimes: The campaign against saving the planet rests mainly on lies.


“The claim that climate legislation will kill the economy deserves the same disdain as the claim that global warming is a hoax,” writes Nobel Economics Laureate Paul Krugman in his September 25 New York Times column. “Even corporations are losing patience with the deniers….So the main argument against climate action probably won’t be the claim that global warming is a myth. It will, instead, be the argument that doing anything to limit global warming would destroy the economy….It’s important, then, to understand that claims of immense economic damage from climate legislation are as bogus, in their own way, as climate-change denial….”
