The business opportunist James Glassman who wrote the absurd Dow 36,000 tome a few years ago, and now runs the puerile Tek Centraal Stazione, thinks he understands global geological and atmospheric physics. The following has to rate as the most aggravating statement I have seen in the last year (commenting on Kyoto):
True. But don't wait for the Greens to lead. Instead, responsible advocates are building a consensus around the right approach, which concentrates not on destroying the economies of developing countries through limits to growth, but on improving those economies through the use of more energy -- the best leverage for boosting living standards. Wealth, after all, makes health. As a nation gets richer, it gets cleaner.
Is there a way to make money by "selling short" clearly untenable ideas?
