I’ll make this short. I love this quotation I read the other day in The New York Times:
“To put the fate of our climate on clean coal and so-called next-gen nuclear is about the riskiest proposition in the world. We might as well bet on leprechauns and the Easter bunny.” — Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club
This comes from an article written by David Gelles. It appeared in the Times‘ “Sunday Business” section, October 16, 2016. Here’s where it gets a bit confusing: the title of the article as it appears in the print edition is “He Believes In Climate Change. And In Trump,” but in the online version (dated October 15, 2016), the title is “Magnate’s Twin Goals: Fighting Climate Change and Electing Donald Trump.”
There are plenty of things (mentioned in the article) that I find very disturbing about Andrew Sabin. Bottom line is this: I think the world would be in far better shape and our prospects for saving the planet would be vastly improved, if people like Andrew Sabin had the financial resources of someone like me, and people like me had the financial resources of someone like him. Just saying.
