New Blog

I added another blog, Environmental Economics, to my links section today. I find it very informative, even though I often disagree with some of the authors' claims. I was particularly amused by this calculation that discusses some of the costs of compliance with Kyoto; this comment estimates that Kyoto compliance might have been a net loss of $40 billion each year.

I don't know what you mean by "amusing." I find it simplistic and willing to make enormous leaps of logic

In self-defense of env-econ, the beginning of the post has a warning about back-of-the-envelope calculations.

Simple? yes

Does the analysis give you a starting point of an idea about what the benefits and costs are of reducing greenhouse gas emissions? I dunno, but that is the purpose.
