And in The Guardian no less:
The benefits of living in a more stable and healthy economy far outweigh the costs of a warming world more susceptible to crises.
Well, quite, a point that is made by many economists. We really don\’t want to screw the economy, in fact we\’d prefer growth and warming than no growth and no warming. Because the benefits of growth will be higher than the costs of warming.
Unfortunately, the writer doesn\’t actually mean this, he\’s managed to entirely garble his argument in that last line of the piece. What he means is that the costs of a warming world far outweigh the benefits of a growing economy.
That\’s how we get the truth in The Guardian these days. By mistake.
