Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

The Brute Economics of Climate Change

I've given this post an absurd title - not because it's April Fools's Day, but because it amused me to do so - for reasons that might or might not become clear any time soon. 

After stumbling on Noah Smith's blog, I've discovered I'm rather impressed by it, or rather by him.

Here is an interesting post on how economists fail to understand the threats of global warming.  Noah quotes Karl Smith who I frequently read and often disagree with, which makes it especially interesting for me.

Maybe I just like Noah's blog title too much.
