Science, Innovation, Politics
This is an excellent and very enjoyable lecture and I highly recommend watching.
Thanks Roger, very interesting slides, very nice summary of your book.Yesterday I had dinner with Richard Tol after he gave a guest course for students in Amsterdam. He said we can solve this (on a century time scale) with a carbon tax. No other measures needed. As I hold both of you in high regard I wonder where this difference comes from. Is that what you explain in the Hartwell paper, i.e. that companies do little in energy R&D and that therefore governements should spent larger amounts specifically on energy R&D? cheers, Marcel Crok
-2-Marcel CrokThanks ... "solve this" -- depends upon what is meant by "this". I'd suspect that Richard and I have different definitions of what "this" is.
