Junk science: who needs GDP anyway?
Steven Milloy is douchebag of the week, spreading the all-corporate, pseudo-free-market, pro-capitalist propaganda that doing something to fix global warming is not worth the reduction in GDP these measures would cause.
Well, Milloy, have I got news for you, because, you seem to be missing the point. Not only is all the stuff we make (this would include the cows for McDonalds, right) the cause of man-made global warming. Anyone with half a brain can see that we're making and consuming all the wrong things, and way too much of it too! Therefor, my question is: who needs the GDP we might lose to tackle global warming? I certainly will not miss any of the useless crap this so-called 'economy' is producing, it's quite frankly a disgrace. Can we think of no better stuff to make? Do we really have to waste our every natural resource on crap?
Here 's a list of things we could do without as of tomorrow, for all those too caught up in making money off them:
-Soda's & beers
-Burgers & steaks
-Diamonds & gold
Start with those and you probably already have a bigger reduction in GDP then what baby Milloy was crying for. Deal with it, you dope.
