Abstract

So, what is one to do about The Tarlock Effect? It didn't take long for me to realize early in my academic career-well before my foray into climate change adaptation policy-that there's just no escaping it. So I learned to appreciate it. Better yet, take advantage of The Tarlock Effect! My way of doing so is easy: when the next brilliant law review idea pops into my head, I read Dan's CV, knowing he probably has said something meaningful on the theme and hoping not everything worth saying. When I find the inevitable-indeed he has thought of it-I read his article and, while doodling on a pad, think about what's left for me, using Dan's take as the lead. It has worked for as long as I can remember. I highly recommend the strategy-it makes The Tarlock Effect less ... distressing.
