Some folks over at the Locke Foundation have started a group blog with other free-market environmentalists called Environment NC. Despite the chorus of ad hominem accusations – greed, corporate shilling, etc. etc – by the usual suspects (congenitally unable, it seems, to offer more substantive critiques), Environment NC is sure to offer some good ideas. Indeed, the world is ready both for some common-sensical and market alternatives to the grossly distortive top-down regulations we’re accustomed to from Big Government and Big Green. Hopefully, folks who really care about the environment will come to see smarter alternatives to command-and-control and will give sound science and property rights approaches a fair hearing.
