Here is our first post 10 years ago today:
John Whitehead and Tim Haab are excited to announce the launch of ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS. A website and blog dedicated to accessible writings on environment and natural resource issues written by economists. ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS can be found at www.env-econ.net
On the site you will find:
- Opinion pieces
- Current event and news analysis
- Literature reviews for the lay reader
- Summaries of recent research findings
- Back of the envelope analyses
- Rules of thumb
- Case studies for teaching
- Simple data analyses
- Book reviews
- Research notes, comments, replies
All postings are accessible, non-technical writings by expert economists. The site will appeal to students and members of the public interested in what economists have to offer in the analysis of environmental issues. If you are interested in posting to the site please follow the instructions on the site.
The site will be continually evolving so check back often (it would even make a very nice default homepage). Pass the site along to anyone you think might benefit from reading economic views on environmental issues.

Here is a graph of our annual page views from StatCounter. As you can see, this blog peaked a long time ago. But at least the recession has not become a depression.
I'm symbolically hoisting one tonight with my buddy Tim (who I've seen in person maybe twice in the last 10 years).
