Now here’s a denier for you.
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman attacks Rick Perry and Mitt Romney for their economic plans entailing the development of our fossil fuel resources.
Krugman dismisses the entire fossil fuel historical record of creating wealth and health for more than 200 years based on the specious claims of environmentalists — to wit, fossil fuel use harms human health and the environment.
Yes, Comrade Krugman, more emissions have meant and do mean more prosperity — they even provide productive jobs for those in the emissions control industry. Fossil fuel emissions — at least as controlled in the developed world — harm no one.
We might add that fewer emissions lead to economic recession and stagnation — witness our current economy. And the lack of emissions leads to poverty (i.e., the Third World) and bankruptcy (e.g., Solyndra).
