Ramsey discounting calls for subtracting climate damages from economic growth rates

Consumption growth rates are an important source of uncertainty in the discount rate. Climate damages are an important source of uncertainty in consumption growth rates. When discounting climate damages growth rates must reflect the rate of those damages.

Applying Asset Pricing Theory to Calibrate the Price of Climate Risk

In contrast to most modeled carbon price paths, our calibration suggests a high SCC today that is expected to decline over time

Fast, cheap, and imperfect? U.S. public opinion about solar geoengineering

"We find that respondents who were asked whether solar geoengineering would cause society to cut emissions more were more likely to believe that this would be the case than those asked whether solar geoengineering would cause society to cut emissions less."

Solar Geoengineering and the Chemtrails Conspiracy on Social Media

Chemtrails are not real. The conspiracy very much is.

Confronting Deep and Persistent Climate Uncertainty

The massive uncertainties afflicting climate change should be a prod to policy action.
