Brown is the Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of Planetary Astronomy at Caltech, the private university Forbes magazine described as one of the top universities in the world for science and engineering.
In his Friday column, Krugman debunks the president's claim that the Agreement is a hindrance to the U. The transition would take time and likely require the construction of a massive power grid to transport electricity across the country, as well as dynamic pricing to incentivize customers to consume less energy, he argues, but its effect on our day-to-day existence would be virtually nil.
"What would life in an economy that made such an energy transition be like? "Almost indistinguishable from life in the economy we have now."In fact, there's every reason to believe that adopting clean energy would save the country money by dramatically reducing the health costs associated with air pollution, to say nothing of potentially preserving human life on Earth.
Environmentalists unanimously urged the president to honor the Paris Agreement, however toothless its terms have proven; even major corporations like Exxon Mobil, Shell and Wal-Mart wanted him to stick with it. The answer, incredibly, appears to be "sheer spite"—aimed at Barack Obama, who helped broker the accord, and the entire liberal establishment that supports it.
"If all this sounds too petty and vindictive to be the basis for momentous policy decisions, consider the character of the man in the White House," Krugman concludes.
