Sometimes I wish the internet would slow down. There is just too much interesting stuff out there.
2. Quiz time! See if you can spot all of the errors in this horribly glib Megan McArdle post on emissions permit allocation. Bonus points for citing previous CT posts that provide rebuttals in the comments.
3. RealClimate puts concerns about the global warming impacts from flat screen TVs in perspective.
4. “Free” roads — available for only $2.22 in gases taxes per gallon! What a steal!
6. Speaking of the food crisis, here are some sensible policy recommendations, starting with the no-brainer (and non-starter) idea of making U.S. food aid cash rather than crops.
7. I discussed the G-8 summit last week while guest-blogging at Free Exchange. Leaders at the summit have pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from current levels by 2050. Cue muffled laughter. Addendum: Creative ambiguity — whether the 50% cut is from current or 1990 levels was left undefined.
