Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.

Follow up:


  • Is Natural Gas No Better Than Coal? (Nick Cunningham, OilPrice.com, Wall Street Cheat Sheet) We have discussed an article on this question previously. Sig Silber has advised Econintersect that the question is not so easy to answer. Although the greenhouse effect with methane is much larger than for CO2, methane degrades over time while CO2 lasts 'forever'. So not only is the question of how much methane is produced important, we also need to know how long it lasts in the atmosphere.

Today there are 14 articles discussed 'behind the wall'. The final three are about the complicated data regarding lack of intergenerational income mobility in the U.S. and how it is and is not related to race.
