Paul Krugman: “Will future generations hate us?”  You know if people look at this . . .  Particularly on the climate change, you look at it and you say . . .  I’ve seen this said – that the idea of what we were worried about in the early 21st century was what a handful of terrorists might do, or what’s the state of Brad and Angelina; when we’re in the process probably of altering the climate in ways that will be very, very detrimental to future generations.  And future generations will not forgive us at the rate we’re now going.
