Searching through the internet, I came across a picture of Paul Krugman posing as a TV weatherman viewing over a hurricane coming along the east coast. In the picture he says; “and we have some wonderful stimulus heading through the southeast.” (link below)
That got me to think about all the global warming alarmist who are claiming the recent spade of hurricanes and tornados are caused by global warming. So, by this logic,
if capitalism and/or economic development is causing global warming
…and global warming is causing more hurricanes and tornados
…and hurricanes and tornadoes are actually an economic “stimulus”
…wouldn’t this be a prosperous cycle? Our economic production, causes devastation, which is actually an economic “plus.” Wouldn’t this be a good thing?
I am being silly of course, but the logic doesn’t seem to coincide.
