On SuperFreakonomics

A squabble between two very famous economists, Paul Krugman and Steven Levitt, over global warming. More specifically, the global warming chapter in Levitt's new book SuperFreakonomics. Update: This story has become big in the blogosphere with a lot of commentary. I'll try to keep up with the posts.

Update: Felix Salmon says that the stir being created by Levitt's book isn't the first occurence.
Update 2: Tim Hartford weighs in on the global warming chapter (FT).
Update 3: the stand-up economist, Yoram Bauman, comments on the global warming chapter.
Update 4: Bauman and Levitt exchange emails. Interesting stuff.
