In which I reveal my folky side. Not a part of my youth; something I’ve learnt recently. The Martin Carthy version (with Eliza on violin, which is where this started, as I was looking for some of her playing for another purpose) is just superb. [[Wikipedia]] has the story if not the words; this is a reasonable written version. If you want, you can listen to some American telling you the bleedin’ obvious.
While I’m here, a brief comment on RC welcoming RCE. RC is climate by scientists. RCE is… very partisan economics by… who? I couldn’t find their names. Their cherry-picking of the economics literature is more reminiscent of the unlamented co2science than RC. General perspectives appears to be a pean to Stern with no hint of any possible problems, which as those who have read me being ratty about Stern will realise I disagree with. The page about discounting alone is perhaps more interesting. But just a list of studies isn’t much good. Again, the RC model is intelligent commentary on papers, not just a list of abstracts. Here they have a rebuttal to Tol listed, but somehow lack the space for Tol’s original abstract. In short, I don’t trust them.
