Review of “The Great Global Warming Swindle” by Chris Seck
Don’t Panic: A Movie Review of The Great Global Warming Swindle by Andrew Kurtzman, Brown University. Here is the money quote from Kurtzman:
We cannot “err on the safe side” by cutting all emissions; doing so necessarily results in wealth reduction, which, as we have seen, causes tangible harm in the Third World. Is hypothetically preventing a small portion of the temperature increase over the next several decades worth the suffering of millions who are hindered from development?”
