Article about Let them eat carbon in the Wall Street Journal Europe

August 22, 2011 6:13 PM

Last Friday the Wall Street Journal Europe ran an article I wrote about Let them eat carbon.  It looks at the pressure climate policy is putting on families and how it makes it harder for our industry to compete.  With so many pressures on European economies they can't afford to bear that kind of burden.  I conclude that:

Reforms to climate-change policy—to focus on research, adaptation and resilience—have been a good idea for some time. With so many other financial and economic challenges facing European economies they are becoming absolutely essential. The only question now is how long the politicians can hold out against a skeptical public that is footing a growing bill in the name of climate-change virtue.
