Valuing Climate Changes examines potential approaches, along with their Valuing climate change book merits and challenges, for a comprehensive update to the current methodology. This publication also recommends near- and longer-term research priorities to ensure that the SC- CO2 estimates reflect the best available science.

Valuing Climate Change presents concrete, economic evidence of the need for action. Fankhauser assesses the costs of a doubling of GHG emissions to be a significant percentage of gross world product; a figure which he then compares to the costs of reducing by: Book Description.

Within only a few years, global warming has emerged from scientific speculation into Valuing climate change book environmental threat of worldwide concern. Yet the scientific community remains uncertain as to the long-term trends and effects of climate change, and this uncertainty has been seized on as justification for inaction by an international.

This book explores the complex relationship that the corporate world has with climate change and examines the central role of corporations in shaping political and social responses to the climate crisis. Valuing Climate Change presents concrete, economic evidence of the need for action.

Fankhauser assesses the costs of a doubling of GHG emissions to be a significant percentage of gross world product; a figure which he then compares to the costs of reducing emissions. In his comparison, he looks at regional as well as global estimates of damage Cited by: The social cost of carbon (SC-CO2) is an economic metric intended to provide a comprehensive estimate of the net damages - that is, the monetized value of the net impacts, both negative and positive - from the global climate change that results from a small (1-metric ton) increase in carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Valuing Change, 1st edition Change is given specific definition within standard forms of contract, for example a Variation, Change of Employer’s Requirements or a Compensation Event.

Each of these terms is explained in the definition section of the relevant contract conditions. Efficiency Greenhouse gas abatement should be carried out where it is cheapest to do. In addition to cost efficiency in the domestic context, which has largely been the topic of Chapter 7, a least cost solution should also be sought at an international level.

Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years.

It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Valuing Weather and Climate: Economic Assessment of Meteorological and Hydrological Services WMO-No.

Managing Ocean Environments in a Changing Climate summarizes the current state of several threats to the global oceans.

What distinguishes this book most from previous works is that this book begins with a holistic, global-scale focus for the first several chapters and then provides an example of how this approach can be applied on a regional.
