Economist William Nordhaus Smacks Down The Wall Street Journal Deniers

CREDIT:

In the New York Review of Books, economist William Nordhaus forcefully responds to 16 scientists and engineers who published an attack on climate science recently in the Wall Street Journal — and claimed that his research backed their support for inaction. “At a time when we need to clarify public confusions about the science and economics of climate change, they have muddied the waters,” he writes. “Policies implemented today serve as a hedge against unsuspected future dangers that suddenly emerge to threaten our economies or environment. So, if anything, the uncertainties would point to a more rather than less forceful policy — and one starting sooner rather than later — to slow climate change.”
