It's utterly bizarro that the Republican party (and the right generally) is so convinced climate change/global warming is false. Is it because they are funded by coal and oil companies? Is it because they hate the very idea of collective action (except when they want to go to war)? Is it because it's been the "tree-hugging", "latte-sipping" left which has pushed for action, and anything that the left does must be automatically opposed, whether it's right or not?
Ted Cruz, putting himself forward as a presidential candidate, is convinced (or pretends to be) that global warming is a furphy. "For the last 17 years, there has been zero warming, none whatsoever." And then he pointed out that it was snowing in New Hampshire. Qu'il est idiot!

Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. I do make mistakes, but I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct. Remember: the unexpected sometimes happens. The expected does too, but all too often it takes longer than you thought it would.
