[L. Hunter Lovins] OK, forget science; this is about business. Assume climate change is a hoax. Don’t go to Las Vegas on the odds of that being true, but it turns out that it doesn’t matter. If all you are is a profit-maximizing capitalist, you’ll do exactly what you’d do if you were scared to death of climate change, because we know how to solve it at a profit.
If it turns out global warming is a hoax, we’ll make a lot of money. If it turns out it’s real — as Iowa farmers are now experiencing — we’ll make a lot of money — oh, and we’ll be on our way to solving the climate crisis.
