Freakonomics does "global warming"

A useful article asking "experts" for their answers to the two-part question:

"What should the U.S. government be doing about global warming, and what should individuals be doing?"

What Should We Really Be Doing About Global Warming? A Freakonomics Quorum

This is what Jason Pontin, editor and publisher of the M.I.T.-owned Technology Review, had to say:

I don’t have very much to say about what individuals can do about climate change; indeed, I am skeptical that individuals can do very much by themselves.

Other contributors make some excellent points and cover the fundamental economics of climate change well. Worth a read.
