I recently started what I thought would be a small skirmish on Twitter with an old friend and fellow PhD econ student from my Texas Tech days. This is by no means the first, nor last, time we'll do this; It's a funny way for us to catch up. The topic at hand was whether or not CO2 should be taxed. The spat then escalated into a 140 character at a time debate on whether or not CO2 is actually a pollutant leading to global climate change.
One of the most useful subtweets in this debate was the so-called libertarian bet proposal by Kaz (@chris78701). After a crazy start to teaching this Fall semester I am finally putting together my `bet' as well as addressing some other ideas that came up in the Twitter conversation.
That's all for now as I have to prep for class. Cheers.
