Steven Levitt Defends Freakonomics on Climate Change

by Morgan Clendaniel

October 31, 2009
A few days ago, we told you about the burgeoning controversy about a chapter in the new Freakonomics sequel, SuperFreakonomics. Well, Steven Levitt appeared on The Daily Show to defend his position. I haven't read the book, so I can't speak fully to the controversy. But in this clip, Levitt's argument-that we should be trying to drastically innovate our way out of climate change in addition to trying to conserve our way out of it-seems quite reasonable.
