Tale of Two Reports
18 February 2009 3:40 pm
So who do you think will be more effective at getting their recommendations listened to:
1) the Natural Resources Defense Council, out with a report listing ways in which the United States and China can collaborate on climate change, mentioning renewable energy, energy efficiency, and combined research efforts
2) Harvard University's Belfer Center, with a report on energy research and the new Administration.
(Hint: Although he wasn't involved in the writing of the report, Obama science adviser John Holdren is the former head of the Belfer Center's science policy shop and started the energy research policy project that produced the document.)
