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 <http://yhoo.it/16ECfUn>, POD's Ed
Gehringer at <http://bit.ly/15xY57m> 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
<http://bit.ly/18Lvai3> . . . . . ."

Unfortunately NERA (2013)] fails to mention the global threat to life
on Planet Earth - see e.g., "Storms of My Grandchildren [Hansen
(2010)] at <http://bit.ly/LfiwzY>. 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
<http://bit.ly/11pDulw>, the NAM essentially lobbies in support of
its own demise.
