"Writing the introduction to a journal article"

Environmental Economics

The introduction is the hardest part to write. Pat Thomson: The introduction can actually be thought of as a kind of mini-thesis statement, with the what, why and how of the argument spelled out in advance of the extended version. The introduction generally lays out a kind of road-map for the paper to come. It also lets the reader know broadly about the kinds of information and evidence that you will use to make your case in the paper. Writing an introduction is difficult.

A water conservation article with no mention of price or pricing

Environmental Economics

Apparently, the Colorado River is drying up: There may be ways to live with a permanently drier Colorado, but none of them are easy. Finding more water is possible — San Diego is already building a desalination plant on the Pacific shore — but there are too few sources to make a serious dent in a shortage. That leaves conservation, a tack the lower-basin states already are pursuing. Arizona farmers reduce runoff, for example, by using laser technology to ensure that their fields are table flat.

Hi Brett. Amrit here. I just read this article in the New Yorker, which is saying basically that hybrid vehicles won't help our environment at all. In fact, they will do the opposite. That the more energy efficient we make things, the increase in demand will more than offset the energy savings. What do you think? [link]

Blue Earth

Hi Amrit, Great question. The answer is not so straight forward. Owen is right on the economic equation that typically efficiency = lower prices = increased demand. I guess hand in hand with that countries with artificially low prices (like Iran until recently) were very inefficient in oil utilization, because per dollar of GDP, oil consumption is one of the highest in the world there. I like the fact that we have all these different ways to consume/produce energy.

Environmental Economics

David Roberts: President Donald Trump’s administration has been on a deregulatory bender, particularly when it comes to environmental regulations. As of January, the New York Times counted 67 environmental rules on the chopping block under Trump. This is not one of Trump’s idiosyncrasies, though. His administration is more ham-handed and flagrant about it, but the antipathy it expresses toward federal regulation falls firmly within the GOP mainstream.
