It's so depressing...
Now, Ross, being an economist and therefore unable to bring himself to commit economic heresy, can't say what I'm about to say:
Measures capable of effectively dealing with climate change would crash the global economy. Absolutely no doubt about it. Ergo, depression, baby !!!
Now, since The Economy is The New God, we must not crash the global economy. Ergo, we will not be able to seriously impact climate change.
And here's the Catch 22: The joint impacts of climate change and oil depletion will absolutely crash the global economy. Ergo, depression, baby !!!
Are we getting this yet, boyzangurrlz? There's a depression not too far down the track.
