greens seeing blue and mercury
Go the the commonsblog to read about a New York TImes articles and one from the director of the Izaak Walton League on green alarmism. We will talk in class about their analysis of why there is so much alarmism. The articles sound very much like the O'Toole article we read during the first week of the semester. Also read about the new EPA mercury rules. Apparently we will spend $5.5 billion to get about about $150 million. Robert Hahn, the co-author of the mercury study was the point person for getting emissions trading established as part of the 1990 Clean Air Act amendments and is considered one of the nation's experts on the topic.
