Waxman-Markey, To-And-Fro

by Patrick Appel

Jim Manzi responds to Ryan Avent. In my humble opinion, Jim has the upperhand –partially because Ryan is forced to argue beyond the legislation in question and consider how W-M will impact future climate bills and international negotiations on climate change. That line of attack inherentaly has more variables and uncertainties. But you won't find a better, or more civil, pro and con debate on the Waxman bill. I encourage you to read both posts.
