Resource: Climate Change Economics
Eric De Place, 18 Dec 08

A handy website for climate policy research.

Alright, this website -- Climate Change Economics -- is basically my dream come true. (Sad, isn't it?) It's a growing collection of resources on, er, the economics of climate change, and specifically on climate policy. Even better, the site is explicitly designed for state legislators, state agencies, and governor's staff.

Timely, no?

I haven't waded through even a small fraction of the material yet, but it looks to be a handy tool. Enjoy.

Oh, I do have one criticism. The website's tagline -- "lowering carbon intensities, not standards of living" -- has got to be eligible for a prize of some kind. Now we need another website called "Climate Change Framing and Messaging."

so, Eric, my colleague who told me to drop the tag was right? OK - we could remove it, but let's wait for some more votes. (Would it be unfair to ask you about your site's claim to "practical solutions to global warming"?? Who defines "practical?") Perhaps taglines are just a bad idea.

BUT, please, Eric and others, remember this site will be as good as you make it - we can't do this alone: the list of materials and diversity of sources keep growing. That's good - since that means more attention is paid to a crucial issue. But that requires that the set of contributors to the site's collection also has to grow. So please, all of you, become members, add references, and make comments on the materials and descriptions, and let's keep the site current with the changing "policy climate."
