Freakonomics is falling for Kahn's publicity hounding:
There are plenty of dire predictions about what will happen to our cities if the worst predictions about global warming were to come true: flooding, droughts, famine, chaos and massive death.

Kahn has agreed to answer your questions about this topic and his new book, so fire away in the comments section below. As always, we’ll post his answers in good time.
Hmmmm...I wonder if Freakonomics would be open to a Q&A from other reknowned Environmental Economists with upcoming books?
