I'm updating my list of links to other blogs and thought I'd take the opportunity to highlight some that I enjoy.
Today: environmental economics blogs. When I started blogging only late last year, there were only a couple of blogs devoted to this area (as far as I'm aware). Now there's a handful.
These guys have the self-confidence to call their blog simply 'Environmental Economics', and rightly so. It's authored by US academic environmental economists John Whitehead from Appalachian State University and Tim Haab from Ohio State University (with contributions from other US economists) and provides relevant, regular and very readable articles.
I'm an occasional contributor to this international group blog with the aim of providing a somewhat greener alternative to the mainstream (and, dare I say, conservative) Environmental Economics.
Environmental and Urban Economics
A more serious academic-style blog by Matthew Kahn of Tufts University (Massachusetts), it contains the full text of interesting articles with some brief commentary.
Devoted to 'free market environmentalism', this blog is a bit hit-and-miss. The 'property rights are the answer to everything' perspective is interesting but the posts are more likely to be rants about how global warming is a myth than discussions of markets, property rights and environmental protection.
Robert Metcalfe (UK)
Robert is a student at London School of Economics and provides a UK perspective on environmental economic issues.
Brad Ewing (Ohio)
Brad is an economics and ecology student at Ohio State University. He posts some interesting articles and has a useful list of resources.
Lots of food for thought on the 'business' of biodiversity conservation.
I'm going to put Harry's blog 'Kalimna' in the 'Australian economics blogs' category, but worth mentioning here as he has a focus on environmental (and urban transport) economics.
Tomorrow: Australian economics blogs.
