Post docs in environmental economics

Always happy to help PhD students get placed:

JOB VACANCY

A research academic, with a PhD in economics or equivalent, is sought for
2-3 years, starting early 2008, for a project on the economics of controlling greenhouse emissions, especially CO2 from fossil fuel burning, at the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University, Canberra. This project is part of our new Environmental Economics Research Hub. Specific research topics could include emission pricing, including avoiding carbon leakage; developing and adopting new low-emission technologies; and lowering consumer barriers to energy efficiency. An important part of the project will be consulting policymakers and communicating results to them, particularly through short courses and workshops.

Great post!

If the economics don't work, recycling efforts won't either.
As our little contribution to make this economics of recycling more appealing, http://LivePaths.com blogs about people and companies that make money selling recycled or reused items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources.
