The Economic Issue of Climate Change

Human caused climate change is very much an economic issue. While this fact has been obscured in the public consciousness, it is important to realize that the effects of climate change are disastrous in large part due to the enormous economic pain they'll inflict on humanity. There's a reason 250 top economists in Canada advocate for a carbon tax, after all. 

Last year, the National Roundtable on the Environment and Economy (a group whose funding Harper's dumb government Conservatives have slashed) released a report detailing the costs Canadians will be forced to pay thanks to climate change.

    1. We don't wanna know the effects of our stupid decisions 'cause we'll be held responsible if we do is the Conservative attitude these days, I guess.
