Donald J. Boudreaux , chairman of the Department of Economics at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., says , "It's a perfectly legitimate stance for truly reasonable people to conclude that the best policy regarding global warming is to neglect it - and let capitalism continue to make us healthier and wealthier."
Actually, no. There is nothing legitimate or reasonable about this position, and it's a continuing problem that mainstream media outlets keep buying this bunkum on the basis that the writer has a PhD in a field unrelated to climate change (or to common sense, apparently).
Tim Lambert at deltoid  has a point-by-point response, which addresses the general goofiness of Boudreaux's position. But the bottom line for all you free marketeers is this: Capitalism will only cure climate change when capitalists turn their creative attention toward addressing the problem. Those who continue to deny it are missing an opportunity to make money , as well as endangering the rest of us.
