"Do you remember the days when Bush administration officials claimed that terrorism posed an “existential threat” to America, a threat in whose face normal rules no longer applied? That was hyperbole — but the existential threat from climate change is all too real.
Yet the deniers are choosing, willfully, to ignore that threat, placing future generations of Americans in grave danger, simply because it’s in their political interest to pretend that there’s nothing to worry about. If that’s not betrayal, I don’t know what is."
Es que 212 legisladores americanos votaron que no al nuevo proyecto de ley sobre el cambio climático. Y Krugman se enojó, porque parece a Obama "no lo quieren dejar gobernarar".
