Yesterday, the GEP Center got it's first (known) external link, thanks to Bill Hogan. It's from http://www.hks.harvard.edu/hepg/index.html to http://global-energy.org/lib/GEPCpapers/09-05, which is the Beyond Kyoto page.

Also, I'd like to thank Peter Cramton for becoming a Senior Advisor on November 12, and Dan Kirshner for becoming one on November 20, 2009.

This version emphasizes that the paper is suggesting a new kind of international commitment, which avoids the pitfalls of both emission caps and mandatory carbon pricing. Available here.

November 9, 2009. Settled on the domain name, global-energy.org, bought it from godaddy, started a Google Site (globalenergycenter), and applied the domain name to it. Started adding content. By this time, I'd worked out that [global energy] was a search term that could draw traffic, and the site just might become something quite substantial.

First thought of starting an "institute" on Sept. 29, 2009 and wrote to Dan, Jurgen and Peter who were basically supportive. The main idea was to have a working-paper series and an affiliation.
