I'm just curious about how the environmental community feels about the world economic crisis. On the surface of it, they should be rejoicing. I mean what better way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions than by shrinking economic activity and by having so much unemployment that people can't buyt anything and there is less consumerism and less production and less emissions! And, to make things even better, the hated car companies are all on the verge of going bankrupt...and the more the economy shrinks the fewer people can afford to drive and so we have less pollution
What's not to like? I mean so what if millions of people go bankrupt and lose their homes and livelihood - look at the bright side at least we can slow down global warming.
