18. Sure Krugman understands climate science

And environmental issues.

This quote by Alanis Obomsawin applies:

When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money.



From the UK Independent

Having children is one of the most destructive things you can to do the environment, say researchers

12 July 2017

"Having children is the most destructive thing a person can to do to the environment, according to a new study.

Researchers from Lund University in Sweden found having one fewer child per family can save “an average of 58.6 tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions per year”.

Eating meat, driving a car and travelling by aeroplane made up the list of the most polluting things people can do to the planet.

But having children was top, according to the new study, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.

'A US family who chooses to have one fewer child would provide the same level of emissions reductions as 684 teenagers who choose to adopt comprehensive recycling for the rest of their lives,' it said."

Of course, what do scientists know? Let's just believe economists, much like Republicans do. And they love quoting the bible, "Be fruitful, go forth and multiply."
