Read - Betraying the Planet by Paul Krugman

I've just read an article, "Betraying the Planet" by Paul Krugman on the New York Times website. It's about the irresponsibility and immorality of climate-change denial.


Although, I'm not American, it's an incredibly fascinating and disturbing read. This article may be about American politicians and their attitudes and views on climate change and global warming. But with further insight, one can see that it's also a reflection of people from societies and countries all over the world, and their attitudes on a very real and disturbing phenomenon. It's horrifying to know that so many people are in denial about pollution, global warming and climate change. 


"Researchers at M.I.T., who were previously predicting a temperature rise of a little more than 4 degrees by the end of this century, are now predicting a rise of more than 9 degrees........" 


If you're interested in this subject and want to read more of the article. Here's the link.
