Howard Latin, professor of law and the Justice John J. Francis Scholar at Rutgers School of Law-Newark, argues for adoption of clean technologies over emissions-reduction plans in a just-released book titled “Climate Change Policy Failures: Why Conventional Mitigation Approaches Cannot Succeed.” He attributes the failure to reduce climate-related risks in any significant way to the misguided support of most climate policymakers, their expert advisers and large environmental groups for ineffectual greenhouse-gas emissions-reduction programs. Howard urges instead that “clean” replacement technologies be adopted as the primary strategy for meeting greenhouse-gas mitigation goals. Paul Solman has been a business, economics and occasional arts correspondent for the “PBS NewsHour” program since 1985. In 2007, he joined the faculty at Yale, where he serves as a Brady-Johnson Distinguished Practitioner in Grand Strategy.
