Lots of people read Tom Friedman's New York Times column. He is considered "very influential" in "liberal circles". So it is always good to see him tell his readers what dire straits we're in when it comes to climate change. And this column was especially entertaining, because it mocked two of the most entertainingly idiotic people to be considered "presidential frontrunners" in recent history. He goes on to expound upon the importance of pricing carbon and creating real green jobs. It is a very green-focused column, and quite relevant. Enjoy.
