  •  Nate is trained in economics. (5+ / 0-)

    He's a babe in the woods on climate.

    If Nate wants to compete with Krugman and Steiglitz he's going to have to work harder. He can't just phone it in like he did in this book.

    And if Nate wants to be taken seriously on the economics of climate change he should go back for a PhD and get a serious lesson in humility by taking oral exams.

    Multidisciplinary studies are very difficult because there are so many things you need to know.

    Humility helps.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
