Two More Good Posts On Nordhaus and Shellenberger's Break Through

To wrap up (I think) the discussion here on Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger's provocative ideas and new book, Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility (see previous posts here and here), I wanted to refer you to two more excellent posts on the topic:

  • Chris Mooney has a post at DeSmog Blog entitled: "Nordhaus and Shellenberger: Overselling the Right Message" that's worth checking out.

  • David Roberts has an excellent reply to Nordhaus and Shellenberger at GristMill in which he makes the excellent observation that N&S have both too much and too little faith in the power of markets.

    And of course, you should probably pick up a copy of N&S's book, Break Through and see what all the fuss is about yourself. There's a lot of good stuff in there. Happy reading...

    Hello Jesse Jenkins. My name is David Norse and I am a friend/coworker/similarly enviromentally motivated organizer of Gretchen Dorings. I'm working on Focus the Nation with the Green Torch Relay, and Gretchen suggested that I see if you could invite the people you know to be involved. There is a facebook event (see link bellow). We could really use the publicity.
    Cheers
