Uncertainty and climate change policy
John Quiggin ()
No WPC08_2, Climate Change Working Papers from Risk and Sustainable Management Group, University of Queensland
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.
