Identifying Smart Climate Change Policies

by David R. Henderson, John H. Cochrane via Policyed.org
Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Climate change is a divisive topic, but the conversation rarely moves past the issue of whether or not the Earth is warming.

quoting Terry Andersonvia CityWatch
Monday, March 12, 2018

Los Angeles Animal Services and other local animal-control agencies and rescue groups cite Pit Bulls and feral cats as California's biggest humane challenges today. Cows are pretty low on their list of trending animal-related public safety/health issues. Thus, in 2018, it is hard to envision that, less than a two-hour drive from opulent Beverly Hills and celebrity-studded Hollywood, reality is transformed into danger and destruction by wild Pit Bulls and feral long-horn cattle.

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

In early February, the Trump administration unveiled a $1.5-trillion infrastructure plan that has received criticism on several fronts. Chief among the complaints is a lack of planning for civil and infrastructure disruptions resulting from extreme weather and a changing climate. But the Trump administration isn’t unique in this regard: studies indicate that governments around the world underinvest in infrastructure resilience by at least 70 percent. But what do we mean when we say “resilience?” And who benefits from efforts that do exist?

by Alice Hill, William Kakenmastervia Taylor and Francis Online
Monday, February 19, 2018

What do we mean when we speak in terms of “resilience?” Why has “resilience” become the hot buzzword, and why is it useful for political leaders who want to avoid saying the words “climate change?” Will the choice of words make a difference when it comes to the need to design infrastructure – roads, bridges, tunnels, houses, factories, power plants, airports, railroads – with rising sea levels, increased storms, and hotter temperatures in mind?

quoting Richard A. Epsteinvia Legal Newsline
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

California officials who made dire climate change predictions about their localities' futures in litigation against energy companies, but not in bond offerings, probably know by now their litigation is doomed, a New York University law professor said during a recent interview.
