Oops!… I (John Mackey) Did It Again

Oops!… I Did It Again

Just when Whole Foods customers were getting over CEO John Mackey’s attempted rally against ObamaCare

“Many promoters of health-care reform believe that people have an intrinsic ethical right to health care…Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges.”
and
“…every American adult is responsible for his or her own health.”

John Mackey attacks climate change in a profile in a January 4th New Yorker Article.  Writer Nick Paumgarten states in the article:

as he (Mackey) put it, “no scientific consensus exists” regarding the causes of climate change
and…
it would be a pity to allow “hysteria about global warming” to cause us “to raise taxes and increase regulation, and in turn lower our standard of living and lead to an increase in poverty.”

Well, if that village is America’s 9th smallest state (that’s us Maryland), it might.  WYPR’s Joel McCord discussed a new report today out by Greenpeace that states Maryland emitted more greenhouse gases than 150 countries, including Denmark, Sweden and Hungary. We are not the worst (Texas is America’s biggest polluter and Vermont is the smallest, according to the report), but the news is shocking nonetheless.

Opponents to government bills addressing global warming have argued that other large countries, such as China, are going to have to hop on the green bandwagon for real change to occur, but this report suggests otherwise.  GreenPeace says, “Historically, no nation has emitted more global warming pollution than the United States.”
