Bad news for the denier talking point that a carbon cap and investment in renewable energy hurts the economy. From Climate Progress:
Forbes magazine has given progressive advocates of climate action a terrific talking point: The “best country for business in the world” — for two years running — is uber-green Denmark.
Indeed, [Niocolas] Müller [hey, I know that guy!] notes the “big irony” in his email:
The country N°1 in their list is Denmark which has spent plenty of money in renewables, is covered by a cap and trade system, has one of the most stringent emission targets, taxes cars 100% or more, and has globally one of the most constraining environmental regulatory framework.
