Paul Krugman, writing in his New York Times column, “Betraying the Planet“:
A handful of these no votes came from representatives who considered the bill too weak, but most rejected the bill because they rejected the whole notion that we have to do something about greenhouse gases.
And as I watched the deniers make their arguments, I couldn’t help thinking that I was watching a form of treason — treason against the planet.
So that’s how Mr. Krugman hopes to win a public policy debate — comparing his opponents to Holocaust “deniers” and accusing them of treason. And you know what we do with traitors…
We make them lie on the beach, reading the 1,428-page bill until the rising oceans pull them to their briny deaths.
