It will be a catastrophe for layabouts who live off over generous grants that would dry up if Glowbull warming falls off the international agenda.

Why the political right denies climate change:
"Economists use what is called a discount rate to compare income and welfare in the future with income and welfare today. If we forgo just a little welfare today through burning less fossil fuel, even applying a modest discount rate, we can guarantee that there will be no catastrophic loss of welfare in 2050. This is exactly the same argument that Ferguson, Osborne et al use in reverse when asking us to accept austerity today for the joy of being free of public debt in decades to come. But it is not OK to use it for climate change. The reason is not hard to see: one implies rolling back the state; the other using it."
