The Miser and the Climate Change.

MEISER (1), SCHMEISER and CLIMATE CHANGE, what’s the connection? The connection is a way of life and the results and the same way of life as a alternative, a kind of remedy. The Miser, a stingy person, a person unable to spend more than the absolute necessary and even then, only as cheap as possible. To call someone a Miser is not exactly a compliment.
