"Global Warming may be acceptable"

Is the rather bold statement from Willem P. Nel and Christopher J. Cooper in the January edition of Energy Policy. The full comment is this,

Our analysis proposes that the extent of Global Warming may be acceptable and preferable compared to the socio-economic consequences of not exploiting fossil fuel reserves to their full technical potential.
Which is pretty much where I stand on the issue.

I was interested to find your England Expects blog. 20 years ago I had a book published on different economic concepts to point the way to a sustainable world economy. Someone who liked the book contacted me this year to suggest that I update and re-publish it as a blog. She set up the blog, and the book is now complete on the blog in a series of postings. There are now also additional pieces on global warming and other subjects. Here is the link:


With all good wishes,
