Thomas Friedman in op-ed today: In a year that’s on track to be our planet’s hottest on record, America turned “climate change” into a four-letter word that many U.S. politicians won’t even dare utter in public. And: While American Republicans were turning climate change into a wedge issue, the Chinese Communists were turning it into a work issue. Further: “There is really no debate about climate change in China,” said Peggy Liu, chairwoman of the Joint U.S.-China Collaboration on Clean Energy, a nonprofit group working to accelerate the greening of China. “China’s leaders are mostly engineers and scientists, so they don’t waste time questioning scientific data.”
Meanwhile, our scoffers here in America grow more certain by the day that it’s all nonsense. Guess who’s gonna have us for dinner?
