john-mackey-1008-def-71608410I’m a big John Mackey fan and so it pains me to write this, but…Mackey you wacky!

The CEO of Whole Foods recently told The New Yorker that he is currently reading “Heaven and Earth: Global Warming—the Missing Science,” a book debunking climate change science.

Mackey confessed to agreeing with the message of the book, stating that: “no scientific consensus exists.”

Further, the Whole Foods founder commented that it would be a pity to let global warming, “raise taxes and increase regulation, and in turn lower our standard of living and lead to an increase in poverty.” And that, “Historically, prosperity tends to correlate to warmer temperatures.”

Yikes!
