ECON 260: Topics Thread
I've always thought this was interesting, I think it applies to environmental econ. It brings up some other questions with it:
-does slowing down our use of oil make any sense if we're going to put the same total amount in the atmosphere in the long run?
-with oil gone will our alternatives be ay better for carbon emmisions?
Palm oil is a crop in malaysia that is a highly procutive source of biofuel. Biofuel has the possibility of being a much lower carbon emitter than oil, but depending on the farming practices and deforestation it could be much much worse.
vail, cost making 8 acres =cloud seeding for a yea
ie Is skiing a negative impact on Mount Hood? or a benefit?
