On the Road
Heading to Atlanta today for a "roundtable" at Emory Law School on "Climate in a Time of Dissensus." I've been busily scribbling a belated paper for the conference on recent game theoretic articles offering strategies with the potential to reduce free-riding in international climate negotiations. More specifically, I'm focusing on a recent paper by Geoffrey Heal and Howard Kunreuther, avaialable (behind a paywall) here, assessing prospects for "tipping sets" to more negotiations to a more cooperative equilibrium. I may post my comments later, after getting some feedback at the conference, which should be useful. Other participants include Harvard Law Prof., and former #2 in the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change, Jody Freeman, my good friend Jonathan Nash and his Emory colleague Bill Buzbee, Ann Carlson (UCLA), and Andre Greene (Toronto).
