    Evaluating Agricultural Economists within Colleges of Agriculture: Money, Students, Outreach, Publications, and Contributions

    The premise of this address is the increasing tendency for faculty to be evaluated in whole or in part at levels beyond the department. What does this mean for the agricultural economist and how should faculty and departments respond.

Fellows Address: G. Cornelis van Kooten, University of Victoria

    California Dreaming: The Economics of Renewable Resources

    Dr. van Kooten will discuss prospects for renewables in electricity (wind, biomass, solar) and biofuels (ethanol, biodiesel). California has a law saying it will achieve an 80% reduction in carbon dioxide output. A study by Jane Long et al. for the state found that the target could only be met using nuclear energy, which he found to be the case for Alberta. A student in engineering found the same to be true in Ontario.
