Shale, Solar and Krugman


Somewhere in this I get the subtle feeling you don't like Krugman......

He is to the left of me for sure (most of the time), For instance I certainly never thought John Edwards for instance was anything but what he turned out to be, and Krugman loved him. Character counts, and ought to trump ideology (most of the time)

Whatever the truth of this particular controversy is, what feels most troubling is the county's inability to even have a sane, civil, thoughtful conversation about it-the historians tell us America has always been that way, and somehow we do OK. Maybe its the American people's total unwillingness to pay for what they get from government, and the politicians on both sides pandering to that unwillingness, makes me wonder whether things are actually worse this time round.
