  • Straw Man Up In Smoke | TNR The Plank | Blog Comments | The Sallan Foundation in the Media
    The piece to which the conversation refers has been archived without comment We have cut and pasted Nancy Anderson s comment in full here The three part debate about what conservatives can do and haven t done to confront climate change is linked to as well Adler accuses Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus of attacking a straw man version of conservative orthodoxy Maybe maybe not But Adler deploys his own straw man of government programs as shabby things mired in placing technology specific bets for cutting carbon emissions to attack public policy that spends real money Granting that there are some bad bets in the record book and whether other technology specific bets deliver on their promises is a separate question entirely climate policy proposals for carbon taxes or cap and trade schemes are inherently technology neutral as they should be Other calls for a new generation of climate friendly solutions like green high performance buildings stipulate performance standards not subsidized silver bullets For example a New York City green building law requires new publicly funded construction to exceed existing building or electrical code requirements How to do that is left up to the architects and engineers Turning to the crux
