Environmental Economics

There is a new Environmental Economics blog that has several contributers. The posts so far seem to favor government regulation more than solutions based on private markets and property rights. They do, however, link to some property and market friendly sites on their blogroll.

I think a few environment questions need to be asked: Can we increase the efficiency of big car rentals so that consumers will buy the smallest car they need rather than the largest car that they need? Why are we focusing global efforts on controlling the least harmful greenhouse gas (CO2) and not starting with global markets to control the more harmful GHG's and pollutants? Should we have a consensus on why the ice age ended before we believe that there is a consensus about human caused global warming?
