"Sacrificing progress makes people poorer, and ... puts them more at the mercy of natural disasters."


"As an indication of how much better wealthy countries are at resisting flood and tempest, look at July’s floods in the city of Zhenghou, which were reported by Western media as a kind of cataclysm – the sort of climate change-induced event from which the world must save itself. Those floods killed 219 people. By contrast, in the much-poorer China of 1975, 26,000 people were killed by a typhoon in the surrounding Henan province."

Thanks to a few abusers I am regularly moderate comments.
I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will delete comments with insulting or abusive language, unless they're entertaining. I will also delete totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
