Reply to: Communicating Climate Risks to Investors: the Next Major Ratings Failure
Coal assets are an obvious case, but what about investment in freeways, desalination plants, sewage treatment plants, California state water project, housing and commercial development that depends on high carbon transport and water pumping, buildings that are unusable without air conditioning…etc. etc. ?

From someone else who remembers the Netscape days and the beginnings of climate politics, some unsolicited and hence likely useless advice:
a. Skepticism is fine, but it does not necessarily follow that people who disagree with you are liars.
b. Just because you might have been told that you - or your siblings, parents - were likely "responsible", for anything, does not mean that you were brain-washed. Nobody can wash your brain without your permission.
c. We all make value judgments constantly, often unawares, and generally have the human frailty of trying to get others to share those judgments by persuasion, force, incentives, or deception. Any intelligent modeler recognizes the value judgments s/he incorporates but few can predict the impact on others' perception, because that might often depend on some other model.

Reply to: Why Investors Support a Price on Carbon
"I don't believe that increasing 'free air' and reducing CO2 emission (through a trading scheme) are mutually exclusive".....
No!! my point on the comment is that trading air or its components CO2 is a granted failure!!!! Only solution is protection of forest, growth forest policies, higher electricity generation standards, investments and research...
