Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested in a recent post "Economic Outcomes of a U.S. Carbon Tax" [Hake (2013)].
Q. What do the "Economic Outcomes of a U.S. Carbon Tax" have to do with math education?

A. Predicting and understanding such outcomes requires education in e.g.: biology, chemistry, economics, ethics, engineering, evaluation,MATHEMATICS, physics, politics, psychology, and technology - not the narrow economic focus of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: In response to my post "Would a Carbon Tax Save Life on Planet Earth?" [Hake (2013)] at <>, POD's Ed Gehringer at <> wrote: "Those interested in the other side of the story might be interested in reading 'Economic Outcomes of a U. S. Carbon Tax' [NERA (2013)] at  <> . . . . . ."

Unfortunately NERA (2013)] fails to mention the global threat to life on Planet Earth - see e.g., "Storms of My Grandchildren [Hansen (2010)] at <>. Without life on Planet Earth there will be no need for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Thus in its "Letter to Congress on Carbon Tax" [NAM (2013b)] at <>, the NAM essentially lobbies in support of its own demise.
