Mythbusting 27.2.2009 Gristmill
By Robert Stavins Communication among economists, other social scientists, natural scientists, and lawyers is far from perfect. When the topic is the environment, discourse across disciplines is both important and difficult. Economists themselves have likely contributed to some misunderstandings about how they think about the environment, perhaps through enthusiasm for market solutions, perhaps by neglecting to make explicit all of the necessary qualifications, and perhaps simply by the use of technical jargon. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are several prevalent and very striking myths about how economists think about the environment. Because of this, my colleague , a professor of economics at the University of Illinois, and I ...

The Dam Building Boom: Right Path to Clean Energy? 26.2.2009 Truthout.com
Led by China, the developing world is engaged in a flurry of dam construction, touting hydropower as renewable energy in an era of global warming. But critics point out that the human and environmental costs of dams remain high. The Jinsha River tumbles down from the highlands of the Tibetan Plateau and courses through China for more than 1,300 miles before becoming the Yangtze. Until recently, it was a free-flowing waterway that ran through the picturesque landscape of Yunnan and Sichuan Provinces, but that is changing rapidly: Taking advantage of a drop of nearly 14 feet per mile, the Chinese government is building - or planning to build - as many as 12 large dams on the Jinsha. More than 300,000 people will be displaced, numerous cultural sites ...

Almost everyone in tiny Colstrip, Montana, drank and dined at Lodge #2190, but the well water was notorious - it smelled like a sewer. It felt oily, gritty from sediment. Lodge members braving a drink - Nees among them - frequently doubled over from indigestion. Nees, 57, a board member at the lodge, fielded numerous complaints about the water. But he and fellow Moose members, many of them equipment operators and technicians at the nearby Colstrip Steam Electric Station, a giant coal-fired power plant, never thought twice about the massive waste ponds a half-mile away. ...
