Betraying the Planet

Krugman starts his blog with stating that voting no to the Waxman-Markey climate change bill is treason to the planet. Krugman goes on to explain that the climate is changing very quickly: ice caps are shrinking, temperatures are rising, and arid zones spreading. The effects of green house gases rising and the ocean not absorbing enough carbon dioxide could be disasterous.Krugman questions how we can just stand back and watch this happen. The polititians and opinion-makers show no sign in being interested in the truth. Krugmans ends the article by calling these people traitors, and have betrayed their country.
Krugman is a very opinionated man with a lot to say against people who believe global warming is a "hoax". He spends most of the article showing evidence of how these scientists and polititians are ridiculous in their thinking and cannot see the information that is infront of them. He rights them off as a joke. He gives evidence of why he is right and wants to show the disaster that could come from ignoring the numbers. Overall Krugman's articles was refreshing to read because he did not just sit back keep his thoughts to himself but stood up for what he thought was right.
