Book Review Abstract

Tom Tietenberg of Colby College, Emeritus reviews "Economic Choices in a Warming World" by Christian de Perthuis. The EconLit Abstract of the reviewed work begins "Originally published in French as Et pour quelques degres de plus (2009). Considers whether the development of carbon markets could reduce world greenhouse gas emissions and trigger policies to build a new low-carbon energy system while restructuring the way agriculture interacts with forests. Discusses climate risk; adaptation to climate change; building a low-carbon energy future; pricing carbon--the economics of cap-and-trade; intensifying agriculture to safeguard forests; the price of carbon--the economics of projects; macroeconomic impacts--sharing carbon rent; and international climate negotiations. De Perthuis is Professor of Economics and Director of the Masters Program in Energy, Finance, and Carbon at the University Paris-Dauphine. Glossary; index."
