Uncertainty and climate change policy

John Quiggin ()

No 152092, Risk and Sustainable Management Group Working Papers from University of Queensland, School of Economics

Abstract: The paper consists of a summary of the main sources of uncertainty about climate change, and a discussion of the major implications for economic analysis and the formulation of climate policy. Uncertainty typically implies that the optimal policy is more risk-averse than otherwise, and therefore enhances the case for action to mitigate climate change.
