Super Freakonomics and Global Warming Solutions

I picked up a copy of the 2011 book, Super Freakonomics by Levitt and Dubner yesterday. I had very much enjoyed their Freakonomics book some years ago. I found the chapter on Global Warming extremely interesting. While not an anti-global warming piece, it did offer what I would call a very balanced look at the whole subject. It would be folly to try to summarize many pages in a short blog, I would encourage you to read at least this chapter. If you are concerned about global warming, you may wish to purchase the book or pick it up at your local library (I don’t receive a commission!). I will say that there would appear to be three or four very technically-feasible, freakishly simple, and very affordable ways to deal with global warming, even if the dire predictions of many “warmists” prove to be true (although the chapter does seem to cast a bit of doubt about the accuracy of current models). Again, this is not a pro or anti global warming piece. I found it unique in its balance and enjoyed very much reading about the innovative solutions that some very smart scientists are working on behind the scenes. It will be interesting to see how these ideas pan out.
