Because climate impacts will be mostly in the future when the economy is wealthier, should future generations should pay for adaptation, or should the present generation mitigate for the sake of its richer descendants? Fleurbaey will examine three ways in which inequalities bear on climate policy: How does the distribution of climate impacts and mitigation/adaptation costs matter for the social cost of carbon; should carbon pricing be uniform or differentiated across development levels; and what are the relevant burden-sharing options?
This event is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Policy Seminar Series organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and co-sponsored by PEI.
