Agriculture and global climate stabilization: a public good analysis

John Quiggin ()

Agricultural Economics, 2010, vol. 41, issue s1, 121-132

Abstract: The stabilization of global climate presents one of the most complex problems in public good provision the world has faced. Continuation of “business as usual” policies, leading to warming of more than 2 degrees over the next year, will produce significant damage to agricultural systems and catastrophic damage to the natural ecosystems that ultimately support agriculture. The best solution to the public goods problem is a “contract and converge” agreement in which the ultimate outcome is a common global entitlement to CO2 emissions per person.
