Global Warming and Property Rights

From our friends at The Commons comes an interesting debate. PERC's Jonathan Adler started a discussion on the Free Market Environmentalism list-serve a few months ago that asked an important question: if we were to assume that anthropogenic emissions are indeed contributing to global warming, and if we accept that climate change would affect different regions in different ways (some beneficial, some negative), then, from a free market environmentalism (FME) perspective, what measures are justified to mitigate the negative effects? Check out the debate here, featuring heavy hitters such as Adler, Steven Hayward, Jane Shaw, and Julian Morris.
