Greening the ghetto and other randomish

Posted by Rich Sweeney on January 7, 2009

1. In this week’s New Yorker*, Elizabeth Kolbert has a good article on Van Jones, author of “The Green Collar Economy”. Jones’ has added a third win to the green-jobs debate, by claiming that not only can we solve climate change and create jobs, we do so in a way that ensures those jobs go to troubled urban youth. In other words we can “green the ghetto”. Interestingly, the piece starts out in New Bedford, MA, where my mother’s family is from. New Bedford was once the whaling capital of the world**, but, like many old cities on the east coast, it enters the 21st century crippled by unemployment and gang violence. It has also been severely affected by the recent wave of home foreclosures.

Now I think we all have a responsibility to help places like New Bedford make the transition into the 21st century, but am unconvinced that Jones’ solution is the best one, for either the city or the environment. The city needs more teachers, police, and affordable healthcare. The environment needs high quality, low cost clean energy alternatives. Given that our society is resource constrained, it’s not obvious that paying troubled youths to caulk up New Bedford houses maximizes aggregate welfare along these dimensions. In the article, Van is quoted as saying, “Your goal has to be to get the greenest solutions to the poorest people.” I’ll let ya’ll decide what, if anything, that actually means.

* This week’s edition also has great articles on Hannah Arrendt (what would she say about green jobs?), Barney Frank (IMO the smartest man in the House), and Bon Iver (eh).

** In re whales and New Bedford, this is pretty crazy.

2. In other news, California is still totally effed. Grist has a good summary of how the Governator is blowing up environmental commitments (albeit comparatively ambitious ones) in search of stimulus. I’m not sure how exactly a state with balanced budget mandate and a $42 billion deficit seeks to create stimulus…..   Just another example of what’s the matter with California.

3. And in super secret news, word on the street is that outgoing Treasury Secretary, and, apparently Christian Scientist, Henry Paulson will be at RFF this Monday to discuss TARP climate change. Deets to follow soon.

Deirdre McCloskey in DC

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on November 25, 2008

From the inbox:

Upcoming Luncheon of the Society of Government Economists

Thursday, December 4, 2008 (12:00 – 1:30 PM)

Deirdre McCloskey

“Statistical Significance is Essentially Meaningless (at the 5% Level).”

Deirdre McCloskey and Stephen Ziliak have been arguing for some years that accepted practices in econometrics are mistaken. In their current book, The Cult of Statistical Significance: How the Standard Error Costs Jobs, Justice, and Livesthey present the full case, drawing on examples from medicine, psychology, and economics. They note that the very simple point is not original.It has been made repeatedly by hundreds of the best statistical theorists and practitioners (Savage, Friedman, Zellner, Kruskal, Heckman) over the past century. And yet users of statistics continue to kill patients and misadvise governments. Why?

Chinatown Garden Restaurant, 618 H St., NW, Washington, DC
(For reservations, contact Steven.Payson@bea.gov)

Reservations are $16 for members, $20 for non-members.

You might recall that I posted on this thread of McCloskey’s research a few months ago.  Just in case you want to relive my econometric frustrations prior to the lunch.

Drunk fail

Posted by Daniel Hall on November 22, 2008

Well, we managed to pretty well screw up the unofficial AERE social at the SEA meetings.  Turns out the Big Hunt doesn’t open until 5 pm on Saturdays (despite what their website says).  I don’t know whether to be encouraged that I don’t actually know what time the bars open on Saturday afternoons, or be discouraged that Evan, Rich, and I are now likely banned from the SEA AERE for life.

And if anyone out there is still looking for us we are down the street at Lucky Bar.

im in ur city, drinking ur b00z

Posted by Daniel Hall on November 20, 2008

The Environmental Economics guys are invading DC!  First, John is presenting over at the EPA today, and then Tim and John will be at the AERE sessions of the Southern Economic Association meetings that run from Friday to Sunday.

But all that pales in comparison to the main event:

Per previous arrangements, we’ll see everyone for the #2 ranked social event of the Southern Economic Association meetings (ranked right behind the UK cocktail party):

Where: The Big Hunt
When: Saturday, November 22
Time: +/- 4 pm (OSU vs UM runs to 3:30 or so) to +/- 6 pm (UK cocktail party begins at 6 pm)

Evan, Rich, and I will be at Big Hunt at 4 pm ready to get our drink on with the godfathers of environmental economics blogging.

And John should add one more event to his already-full Saturday social calendar: the These United States show at the Black Cat on Saturday night.  Based on his revealed and stated preferences I think he will really like these guys.  Right now they are the best thing in the DC local music scene.

Update: By the way, doesn’t look like the Big Hunt opens until 4 pm on Saturdays so you might want to make sure that you err on the + side of 4 pm.

Tomorrow at RFF: That ’70s Show

Posted by Rich Sweeney on October 28, 2008

Looks like we’ve already got a full house, which isn’t surprising given the impressive list of speakers. Sorry for the late invite. Fortunately you can stream the video here.

Energy Policy Challenges: Is the Past Prologue?
Wednesday, October 29, 2008, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Resources for the Future
1616 P Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036
First Floor Conference Center

In the late 1970s, a series of studies was produced that surveyed America’s energy situation, including the landmark book Energy in America’s Future by scholars at Resources for the Future. Thirty years later, this symposium will provide a retrospective assessment of the 1970s experience in order to extract lessons for current policy. In what ways is the past a prologue? Which projections materialized and which policy concerns proved justified? Which did not? With what confidence or humility should this retrospective inform current visions of our energy future, given the emerging challenges of energy security and global climate change?

A distinguished group of academics and policymakers will draw on their extensive experience with U.S. energy policy to put the current energy landscape into historical perspective. Panelists include:

  • Professor John Deutch (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
  • Robert Fri (former President of RFF)
  • Professor William Hogan (Harvard University)
  • Milton Russell (Emeritus — University of Tennessee)
  • Phil Sharp (President of RFF)

Protection from a sometimes vindictive mother…

Posted by Danny Morris on September 2, 2008

For now, it appears like New Orleans has mostly dodged a bullet with Hurricane Gustav. While power  remains down and there is mild flooding throughout the deserted crescent city, fears that we would witness the second-coming of Hurricane Katrina thankfully did not come to pass. Still, just because New Orleans survived this storm does not mean it will survive another storm that is perhaps a little more powerful and a little more on target, as Andrew Revkin highlights today on DotEarth.

Some of the questions brought up in the aftermath of Katrina and stirred up again with Gustav relate to human infrastructure in the face of a pissed-off mother nature. The flashy question is of course ‘is New Orleans worth saving?’ Another more nuanced, and ultimately more important, question though lingers in the background and that is ‘what can cities do to reduce their vulnerability to extreme weather events?’

The question is not as simple as reinforcing our infrastructure (i.e. building higher levees), because it doesn’t take a hurricane to show us that the systems we have to protect ourselves have pretty significant limits. The floods throughout eastern Missouri earlier this year were perfect examples of supposedly adequate infrastructure failing. Stupid policies, like offering tax incentives to developers who build levees that narrow the Mississippi River’s channel in order to throw up subdivisions and the country’s longest strip mall (in Chesterfield, MO) on former floodplains, don’t buttress these systems from letting people down either. Anyone who has taken any kind of river or hydrology course should be able to tell you that when you reduce a river’s channel, flood water doesn’t have much choice but to go up, and eventually over, the levees that restrict it. I have devised a series of equations that should highlight this concept:

Free money (tax breaks) + developers = new levees + smaller river channel

smaller river channel + high flood waters = broken levees

broken levees = sad people with wet houses

Solving these kind of problems will not be simple, but there may be some solutions on the way, courtesy of the nation-state of California. The state Senate there recently passed a bill that was designed to discourage suburban sprawl as part of the larger efforts to bring the state into compliance with AB 32, the sweeping climate change bill passed in 2006. Here’s a couple things the bill would do, according to the San Jose Mercury News:

The bill would require local governments to plan their growth so homes, businesses and public transit systems are clustered together. The goal is to help California meet the emission mandates spelled out in a wide-ranging greenhouse gas reduction law passed two years ago.

At the same time, it will encourage housing to be built closer to where people work and shop while discouraging the type of suburban sprawl that has characterized California’s development pattern for decades.

It requires local governments to submit regional development plans to state air regulators for approval, making them eligible for billions of dollars in state and federal transportation grants…

…[Sen Darrell Steinberg's] bill requires the California Air Resources Board to work with local governments to set regional targets for reducing heat-trapping greenhouse gases. Those targets would be used in transportation plans for each of the state’s 17 metropolitan regions.

Similarly, the state would create regional housing plans that take into account the transportation plans, putting more homes near rail and bus lines and within a short commuting distance of major employers.

Local governments and transit agencies that comply would get faster regulatory approval, including an easing of the usual environmental review requirements. That provision allows a major concession to developers by making it more difficult for opponents to sue them as a way to stop projects.

No doubt libertarians are shuttering from here to Zzyxx, CA (a real town, I promise), but if the bill passes, it may provide a useful template for other states to emulate. It’s not a huge leap to envision a similar bill discouraging additional developments in major floodplains and coastal areas while limiting the irresponsible growth of communities that are already exposed to elevated risks. Such efforts may not help solve the tricky problem of places like New Orleans, but it could help head off future problems. State senators, start drafting your legislation…

Today in TV on the internet

Posted by Daniel Hall on June 24, 2008

Today’s E&ETV broadcast has coverage of last Wednesday’s event here at RFF:

Beyond the emissions reductions goals of a future U.S. climate policy, how should legislation encourage the development of technology and strengthen global partnerships? During today’s E&ETV Event Coverage of a recent Resources for the Future event, a panel of climate experts discusses the broader objectives of a domestic climate policy. Panelists include, Ray Kopp, senior fellow and Climate Policy Program director at Resources for the Future, Nigel Purvis, visiting scholar at Resources for the Future, Linda Cohen, professor of economics and associate dean for research and graduate studies at the School of Social Sciences, University of California-Irvine, and Bob Simon, Democratic staff director of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

The panel discussion at the end of the video (after the three panelists give individual presentations) is particularly interesting. The panelists had a broad range of backgrounds and perspectives, and their insights about each others’ areas of expertise are illuminating.

The session that E&ETV covers here is actually the last of three sessions from an event on designing federal climate policy. The RFF webpage has coverage of all three sessions, including both video and slides from the presenters. I recommend Jake Jacoby’s presentation from the first session, and Howard Gruenspecht’s comments in the second, particularly the last 5 minutes of his presentation and his input from the panel discussion.

Finally, if you’re curious about what the top of my head looks like from behind, you can see it on the bottom-right of the E&ETV video (just left of their logo). I was up front keeping time for the speakers.

Nation’s Urban Centers Ranked for Carbon Footprint

Report Released This Thursday, 5/29

For the first time, the nation’s 100 largest metro areas are ranked for the size of their carbon footprints in a new report to be released this Thursday, May 29th by the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program.

An AUDIO NEWS CONFERENCE will take place with the report authors to discuss findings and policy recommendations:

WHEN: Wednesday, May 28, 1:00 PM EDT

DIAL-IN: 877-795-3647

“Shrinking the Carbon Footprint of Metropolitan America” provides extensive analysis and surprising conclusions on

· The dramatic variations in the carbon footprints of our large urban centers

· Regional comparisons – which regions are shrinking their footprints and which are growing theirs

· The per capita size of the carbon footprint of an urban dweller vs. a non-urban dweller

· What factors determine the size of a carbon footprint – residential buildings, cars, development patterns, rail transit, freight traffic, weather, electricity sources, and electricity prices

The report offers recommendations on how the federal government should step up its support of metropolitan efforts to shrink their carbon footprints.

If you would like to receive embargoed materials or interview the authors, please contact Carrie Collins at 301-664-9000 x18 or ccollins@bcc-associates.com or Vanessa Bilanceri at 202-244-0121 or vbilanceri@gmail.com .

Is there such a thing as a free lunch?

Posted by Daniel Hall on May 19, 2008

Yes, at least if you can be in DC at Resources for the Future on June 4:

U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions: What are the Opportunities, at What Price and Through What Policies?

A central question for U.S. climate policy is the opportunity and cost of greenhouse gas emissions reductions and the best approaches to achieve them. In December, McKinsey & Company and the Conference Board released a major report — Reducing U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions: How Much at What Cost? This analysis finds that 30 to 45 percent of forecast 2030 greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced at costs of less than $50 per ton of carbon dioxide equivalent — and potentially far less if sizeable energy efficiency gains are captured. Our panel will describe and discuss these findings and their implications for the current policy debate.

Wednesday, June 4, 2008
12:45 pm – 2:00 pm
A light buffet lunch will be available at 12:30 p.m.

Please RSVP by sending your contact details in an email to rffseminars@rff.org.

The McKinsey study that will be discussed has gotten a lot of publicity for suggesting that there are many large free lunches to be had in the energy and emissions arena — we can reduce emissions for negative total costs — particularly with energy efficiency projects. I will be there and am very curious to hear what one of the report authors says about the study.

Here’s a previous post from Rich on the McKinsey study.

FutureGen quote of the day

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on May 5, 2008

Sen Kit Bond (R-MO) compared DOE’s change of heart to leaving the project “at the altar choosing three younger, cheaper women.”

Wow. The Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee is having a hearing on FutureGen this week. The witnesses are Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman and FutureGen Chairman Paul Thompson. I think this quote indicates that it’s going to be nothing if not entertaining — stay tuned for a first-hand account.

For interested DC readers, the hearing is Thursday at 9:30am at 192 Dirksen Senate Building.

H/T: Shalini.

Oh, hey internet, what’s up?

Posted by Daniel Hall on April 1, 2008

Regular readers of this blog now have a general sense of what my posting habits are like in a month in which I spend a quarter of the month on vacation, two of my best friends get married, my hard drive fails, I look for new housing, and my alma mater makes a deep run in the NCAA tournament.

I don’t know if that’s an excuse or an apology, or perhaps just an acknowledgment that real life is going to distract me from this blog sometimes. But hopefully a more regular posting schedule commences today. I actually still have a housing search to conduct and a computer to nurse back to full health, but there are no weddings this month, no vacation time, and the ridiculously talented Memphis Tigers have dimmed my basketball fever.

Speaking of basketball, though, Tim Haab calls me out for making such vanilla Final Four picks in the EnvEcon tournament pool. Presumably by “vanilla” he means “correct”. The upshot is he’s slightly ahead right now but if the UCLA Bruins beat Memphis on Saturday then I beat Tim and John in their own pool. I just became a Bruins fan! Not that this is much to brag about since Tim and I are both pretty far off the lead, but I’ll take it.*

Anyway, while I was “away” we’ve had a new blogger join us, Erica Myers. Welcome Erica! She’s got some background in experimental economics, which is an exciting addition to our collective perspective.

Coming your way this month I think we should have a couple of interesting book reviews, plus I attended a couple events last month that I want to post thoughts on.

Before I go I’ll put in plugs for two upcoming events at RFF, both next week. Wednesday April 9 there will be a “First Wednesday” event on curbing electricity demand, looking specifically at Maryland’s Strategic Energy Plan. Then on Thursday April 10 Matt Kotchen will be here presenting his paper that shows daylight saving time increases energy use.  Please join us for either — or both! — events.

*We’re not even going to mention fellow environmental economics blogger Mike Giberson of Knowledge Problem, who’s whipping our butts, let alone the bloggers at the far front of the pack, Jim Casey and James Hamilton.

Workshop on managing the costs of climate policy, March 19

Posted by Daniel Hall on March 4, 2008

This event on “cost containment” within climate policy should be superb. It’s here at Resources for the Future on the morning of Wednesday, March 19 (full details at the website). I’ll be there, and hopefully can provide some post-event thoughts.

Managing Costs in a U.S. GHG Trading Program: Issues, Options and Implementation

One of the most controversial issues in the debate over the design of a U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) trading program is how such a program will address concerns about potential costs and adverse impacts on the economy. A variety of proposals have emerged, including an explicit upper limit on allowances prices (in S.1766, the Low Carbon Economy Act) and an independent board to manage the emissions budget over time, in order to contain costs (in S.2191, the Climate Security Act).

This workshop will feature two expert panels to explore implications, advantages, and disadvantages associated with different approaches to managing costs. The first panel (8:30- 10:30a.m.) will focus on general mechanisms, like a safety valve, a quantity-limited safety valve, borrowing, and others. The second panel (10:45a.m.- 12:30p.m.) will focus on the potential role of an independent board, both to provide oversight and to intervene in the market with discretion, rather than via explicitly legislated rules. Half of the scheduled time will be reserved for questions from the audience.

Please RSVP by March 12 to April Stanley at events@rff.org or (202) 328-5074.

Where…

Posted by Rich Sweeney on March 3, 2008

Where I won’t be today: the Heartland Institute’s global warming skeptics conference in New York. The first page of the program says it all. John Tierney tells us that the meeting is an assortment of “climate scientists, economists and free-market think-tankers”. Are there really any economists out there who don’t believe in negative externalities?

Where I will be tomorrow: the Washington International Renewable Energy Conference (WIREC). Too many interesting attendees and events to mention. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the DC area, even if it’s just the trade show floor.

Where I hope to never be: at the reception desk of the DC office (read: lobbying branch) of a petroleum company. On Saturday night I had dinner with a friend who is currently temping at the front desk of an oil company. She told me how at their staff meeting last week people just went around the room for twenty minutes complaining that global warming is “total bullshit”. She also told me that the higher-ups’ private bathrooms have $10,000 hand made Italian toilet-paper dispensers. Nuff said.

Stuff To Do

Posted by Rich Sweeney on January 22, 2008

  1. Go see There Will Be Blood. Seriously. It was awesome. Also, if you’re interested in the the history of energy/ oil (and haven’t already read Upton Sinclair’s novel) it’s a nice complement to broader histories like Yergin’s The Prize.
  2. Listen to my boss, Dallas Burtraw, and several others testify before Congress tomorrow on carbon permit allocation. Should be live on www.globalwarming.house.gov.
  3. Attend this Friday’s AEI Conference on Texas Electricity Recycling. Lynne Kiesling, of Knowledge Problem, and her co-author will be presenting chapters from their new book. I know that some of us will be there.

Where I will be all day tomorrow

Posted by Daniel Hall on November 27, 2007

Resources for the Future is holding a briefing tomorrow to unveil its new report, Assessing U.S. Climate Policy Options. The website for the report, www.rff.org/cpfreport, is now up:

Written by independent RFF scholars and informed by a year-long dialogue with Forum participants who provided feedback and recommended areas of focus, the report encompasses 15 issue briefs, detailing policy questions and concerns in key areas related to greenhouse gas emissions and legislative proposals to curb them. It is designed, first and foremost, to present information objectively and to focus on those aspects of federal policy design that are most important.

This report has been my major project for the last year. I got to write a few of the issue briefs, so it’s very exciting to see the full report come out!

It will also greatly simplify holiday conversations with relatives about what I do at my job: I can just point them to the website!

Climate policy briefing at RFF, November 28

Posted by Daniel Hall on November 19, 2007

There will be a briefing at Resources for the Future next week that will serve as the rollout event for a new report on U.S. climate policy. From the website:

Resources for the Future organized the U.S. Climate Policy Forum in May 2006 to analyze and make findings regarding policies to address global climate change. … The Forum’s objective is to provide legislators with well-vetted, detailed policy options; important criteria for policy assessment; and well-articulated concerns (specifying the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches), from which effective federal policy might be crafted.

The report, Assessing U.S. Climate Policy Options: A report summarizing work at RFF as part of the inter-industry U.S. Climate Policy Forum, represents the culmination of the Forum process. Written by independent RFF scholars and informed by a year-long dialogue with Forum participants who provided feedback and recommended areas of focus, the report encompasses 15 issue briefs, detailing policy questions and concerns in key areas related to greenhouse gas emissions and legislative proposals to curb them. It is designed, first and foremost, to present information objectively and to focus on those aspects of federal policy design that are most important.

Please RSVP by November 19 to Lisa Mihalik, at 202-328-5177 or by email: events@rff.org

This report, and the process that fed into it, has been one of my major projects for the last year, so this is personally exciting for me. A lot of thoughtful analysis from a number of scholars at RFF has gone into writing the report. I encourage those in the DC area who are interested in federal-level climate mitigation policy to come. There are more details at the website.
