Krugman, Mahon on Climate Change

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine cover story, “Building A Green Economy” by Paul Krugman was a great primer on possible solutions to global warming and a call for action on climate change. Guest writer Tim Mahon carries the same message, but from a Christian perspective; his Jesus Wants US to Stop Global Warming provides a new look at the issue for naysayers.

Krugman also argues “cap and trade is a reasonable way to create those incentives” – that is, incentives for climate change solutions. But a February piece in Harper’s, “Conning the Climate: Inside the carbon-trading shell game” by Mark Shapiro laid out the execution problems with current cap and trade schemes around the world, namely ways the big companies were gaming the system.
