Alan Carlin still at work

Alan Carlin wrote an epic book Environmentalism Gone Mad a few years ago when he retired from the US Environmental Protection Agency after several decade of cost/benefit analysis of environmental policies. He was an early member of the Sierra Club when it was more or less a traditional Conservationist organization and he left when it moved into modern radical Environmentalism. He trained in science and economics to a high level and continued to develop his insights on both fronts. He is one of the really important but little-known contributors to climate realism. Check out his blog.

    He references an article in Times of India by Sanjeev Sabhlok, who has occasionally posted on Catallaxy Files.

    Sanjeev also asks this interesting question on his own linked blog:

    https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/blogs/seeing-the-invisible/are-we-genetically-corrupt/

    Recently a retired Indian civil servant wrote to me: “if you analyse the DNA of a child born here you will find the bribe gene”. This genetic disposition presumably explains India’s chronic corruption.

    Unfortunately his book is mind-numbly boring so certainly not widely read
