It's indeed an interesting piece, particularly in the link to the Copenhagen Consensus, which has evaluated the cost/benefit of spending decisions with regard to the world's ten most pressing challenges (in their view, of course). They do not deny manmade climate change, but as economists evaluate how best to spend our limited financial resources.It is clearly important -- no, crucial -- to think about such priorities. Trigger warning: these are dreaded experts and scholars i.e. an elite.
Thanks for the warning, Lee. I won't be seeking any safe space though. Bring 'em on!
