  • Possible But Not Probable | The political scientist Tom Ferguson sees a significant shift in the US business position on climate legislation — from unified hostility to selective support — especially among those sectors of the US economy related to investment, insurance, and pensions. At a conference on the Economics of Global Warming held in October 2007, he stressed, as he always does, that economic clout is the driving force of national politics and that smart money was shifting its position on climate. As if to confirm Ferguson's Golden Rule (University of Chicago), in a startling turn about, the New York Times reports that Republican presidential contenders are now debating how to address climate change, rather than how to ignore or deny it. Ferguson also insisted that as a general rule public opinion polls don't predict policy developments. Based on these two premises, he concluded that Americans should expect passage of federal climate legislation, regardless of whether concern over climate change starts to top polling data. Contrast Ferguson's position with an exhortation to dream and frame a positive message. Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger (I'm going to call them "N&S" from now on) expand on their widely read "Death of Environmentalism" essay in their new book Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility (Houghton Mifflin). | What Nancy's Reading | The Sallan Foundation in the Media
    in the clean technology basket Now we come to the crux of the matter can we say that N S have mapped out a coherent credible breakthrough strategy for shrinking our carbon footprint while growing our economy and expanding opportunities for good jobs Alas the answer is no because their prescription is not rooted in a proper grasp of the history of 20th Century environmental policy in the US The era of modern American environmental policy is defined by passage of landmark federal legislation including the Clean Air Act the Clean Water Act the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and Superfund What all these laws have in common is the operating principle that pollution is reduced by permitting systems thereby regulating and reducing it All these laws provided the impetus for vast new areas of scientific and engineering expertise and the appearance of new industries Although the 21st Century has not been returned to an environmental Eden the success of these landmark laws is indisputable Laws that permitted and constrained pollution produced great technical and economic growth Such growth would be inconceivable without the mandates and restrictions imposed by law The N S prescription for positive thinking and investment to address 21st Century climate change also lacks a sure sense of the actual role of national leadership on climate in the Bush era especially where enormous economic forces are in play not to mention the high stakes arena of international energy competition And let s not forget if Tom Ferguson is right even if he s not 100 right understanding policy making as well as political outcomes cannot be reduced to polling and popularity It s worth noting that N S are silent for example about investing in innovations or updating building codes that make buildings much more energy efficient in order to shrink our carbon footprint Well insulated buildings and low e value windows don t seem like requirements that would send voters running in the other direction It s N S who are running in the other direction by pouring some of their greatest rhetorical scorn on environmentalists unsuccessful campaign to win legislation that would increase CAFE standards while saying nothing about the role of the auto industry in fighting new standards or cutting CO2 emissions both in Congress and the courts Don t be fooled by recent green advertising by Detroit automakers Contrary to their image makers investment in the research and development in cutting carbon emissions from their products is driven first by European and Japanese carbon emissions standards If domestic companies sold cars and trucks only in the US would there be similar investment in carbon emissions research Draw your own conclusion and decide whether it s in keeping with the N S breakthrough While making the case for the alternate energy investment strategy N S take time to write off legislation that sets carbon limits The problem with regulation centered approaches from Kyoto to a carbon cap and trade system is not just that
