Climate change is a very special economic problem for three reasons:
First, it results from people all around the world just going about their everyday activities. Second, the most significant impacts of greenhouse gas emissions resulting from these routine activities will come sometime in the future. And third, these future impacts are externalities not incorporated into our present day economic policies and calculations.
On May 13, Dr. John Hagan, President of Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, will discuss the macroeconomics of climate change. He will outline projected impacts of future greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, and explain how leading economists are thinking about internalizing these future costs into our present global economy.
The choice about what to do today can be summarized simply: How much risk are we willing to accept today on behalf of future generations?
Please join us on May 13 and explore arguably the biggest economic conundrum humans have yet faced.
