Carbon Pricing

December 1, 2010

Pachauri is speaking on carbon pricing right now. I had intended to blog a little more aggressively here, but honestly, the internet connections are completely terrible, so there’s no guarantee that what I type will ever make it onto the intertubes.

At any rate, Pachauri thinks that there must be some set of incentives and disincentives that lead to mitigation get rewarded in the marketplace. What he really thinks is that academics have been remiss in not attending to these sorts of questions.

For instance, if the EPA or any other arm of the US government were to regulate construction standards associated with new buildings, we could somehow make great ground… which he mentions even though this has very little to do with climate finance or carbon pricing.

  1. “you can get a feel for this by reading some of the stuff that the otherwise sane Ben Hale blogged. The aura of “why did I bother turn up” is palpable” – http://scienceblogs.com/stoat/2010/12/cantcun.php

  2. Have you looked at your site with various browsers? I¡¯m using IE 7 and the design and style is a bit off.

  3. I don¡¯t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
