  •  I don't believe for one minute (8+ / 0-)

    that the powers in the economic, corporate, or political
    world believe the crap they spout.  It is for show to
    keep the fossil fuel industry pumping money in their
    coffers.  Muddy the message and keep the people under
    their thumb; spread the fear of more lost jobs (keep
    unemployment high) and it's really quite easy.  As long
    as they believe they'll survive in their gated
    communities, they'll play this as long as they are able.

      That Swedish bloke, or was he Danish, the "sceptic"  just flipped.  He must have secured his portfolio.

    •  You Can Gain a Billion Dollars for a Few Years' (4+ / 0-)

      or months' work at the top of the economy. Nothing short of an asteroid can hurt your interests faster than you advance them at that speed.

      That's the reason we need most of incomes to be taxed away starting at a very few times the national median. The New-Deal thru Vietnam War rates would hit 50% at around a quarter million dollars today.

      It made the whole top end much poorer than today and therefore far more dependent on the long term health of the economy and their world.
