You know, I'm no big fan of Bombs-Away Gore, and you'll hardly find me leaping to his personal defense, but nonetheless. Is this is or is this ain't the single stupidest thing ever written? Anywhere. By anyone. (A hint, Reader: Yes.)
Bonus killer stupid happy line:
First, I'll make the extreme assumption that our environmental recklessness threatens to shave 1 percentage point off economic growth forever.Right. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Will no one rid me of these people?
Look. All of my assumptions about the ideal future development of the human race hinge on a global population of under 1 billion peeps, so I'm not even averse to a little man-made environmental catastrophe. But you know, in the meantime, I think it would be awesome if you hopped out of the Suburban and took a stroll to work, fatty.
