The Economics of Global Warming From a Couple Pros

Checking your email can be so wonderful. Today, exploding toilets. Yesterday, two of my favorite topics, China and Climate Econ.
From a nice person at Bloomberg:

On December 17th on Bloomberg Radio®, "Bloomberg on the Economy" host Tom Keene focused on the economics of global warming with John Llewellyn and Elizabeth Economy. Dr. Llewellyn, senior economic policy adviser for Europe at Lehman Brothers Holdings, spoke from London about the search for global warming solutions that don't dampen worldwide economic growth and elaborated on his own climate strategy involving a combination of greenhouse-gas emissions regulations and expansion of carbon-trading markets. Dr. Economy, senior fellow at Council on Foreign Relations, continued speaking on the carbon-credit industry and pollution in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, as well as discussed her award-winning book, "The River Runs Black: The Environmental Challenges to China's Future." We thought you might find the interviews of interest. Please feel free to follow the link below to listen to their conversations:

"Bloomberg on the Economy" is podcasted at and also on iTunes under Business News.

Hope you enjoy listening.
