Copenhagen Consensus Exercise for Climate Change: Pielke and Tol are on the job

Here is some Very Good News: Roger Pielke, Jr. and Richard Tol are both working with the Copenhagen Consensus Exercise for Climate Change. Roger has moved his primary blogging perch from Prometheus, the site he founded at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado at Boulder. From July 2009 you will find Roger blogging here.

Roger has a new post up on Richard Tol’s analysis. I recommend that you get straight over there to read Richard’s analysis of mitigation options, plus two responses from Onno Kuik and Roberto Roson.

In sum, this is very encouraging – perhaps now we will get some intelligent, informed debate on policy covering the whole range options from mitigation to adaptation to geoengineering.
