Samuel J at Catallaxy puts principal blame for the global financial crisis on the global introduction of policies to address climate change.
Update: Samuel J corrects a typo in my comment above – I guess that is a some sort of response – and now says that he was only engaging in “musing” and that he never asserted that climate change policies were the only cause of the GFC which of course is rejecting a claim no-one made, certainly not me.
But let me quote:
“….I am coming to the view that the principal catalyst of the GFC – the smoking gun if you like – was the wholesale capitulation by governments and big businesses to the siren song of AGW”.
Sounds fairly definite to me, not a musing. JQ’s point in the comments is worthy of attention. Do Sinclair Davidson and Judith Sloan endorse these views? These are (or have been) professors in universities who have studied economics. How do they respond to this idiocy? (2777)
