The Stern Review might, just might, if we are very very lucky, save the world. Scientists and environmentalists have of course been pointing all this stuff out for years, and have been almost totally ignored. But if Stern, an economist, can convince the fat-cat capitalists that it will cost serious money if nothing is done, that it's in their own selfish interests to stop polluting, well, something might happen, and damn what the proles think - or the politicians, for that matter.
BTW, the Indy took up its first 10 pages covering Stern today. Top.Posted to The Big Room by Simon Brunning at October 31, 2006 01:56 PM
