problem with this book is not that she wants redistribution it is that she believes in it too much She filters all her information about the world through this moral lens which results in simplistic

problem with presenting a range like that is believers will pick the figure they want to believe You just did that didn t you Those values are both unlikely extremes The reality is most likely somewhere in betweenThe hard truth is we do not know how fast climate change will happen and we do not know how it will affect any particular region The effects f ur actions today will not be felt
