The Conundrum

Posted By Russ Roberts On February 13, 2012 @ 6:57 am In Environment,Podcast | Comments Disabled

David Owen of the New Yorker and the author of The Conundrum: How Scientific Innovation, Increased Efficiency, and Good Intentions Can Make Our Energy and Climate Problems Worse [1] argues that most of the ways we’re fighting global warming (more efficient energy use, buying local, wind power, etc) either don’t work or are actually counterproductive. I really enjoyed his book. Hope you enjoy the interview [2].
