Recession -- Good for the Environment!
1:32 PM, Nov 22, 2010 • By DANIEL HALPER
Many lament the poor state of our economy. But those poor souls, oh how they miss the good in the bad recession:
Let's go ahead and give the president the benefit of the doubt -- I think he knows what he's doing. Economic recovery means higher emissions, USA Today reports: "The study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, projects that if the economic recovers as expected, global fossil fuel emissions will increase by more than 3% in 2010."
So what does the president do? He supports a catastrophically flawed stimulus package, he wages war on business, and he supports raising taxes in the middle of the recession!
Are these policies going to help end the recession? Of course not. But they will help save the planet from carbon emissions!
