Since the publication of the Stern Review, economists have started to ask more normative questions about climate change. Should we act now or tomorrow? What is the best theoretical carbon price to reach long-term abatement targets? How do we discount the long-term costs and benefits of climate change? This provocative book argues that these are the wrong sorts of questions to ask because they don't take into account the policies that have already been implemented. Instead, it urges us to concentrate on existing policies and tools by showing how the development of carbon markets could dramatically reduce world greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, triggering policies to build a new low-carbon energy system while restructuring the way agriculture interacts with forests. This provides an innovative new perspective on how a post-Kyoto international climate regime could emerge from agreements between the main GHG emitters capping their emissions and building an international carbon market.

Book Description:

This provocative book argues that economists typically ask the wrong sorts of questions about climate change because they do not take into account the policies that have already been implemented. It shows how we can use such policies to develop carbon markets that could dramatically reduce world greenhouse gas emissions.

About the Author:

Christian de Perthuis is a Professor of Economics at the University Paris-Dauphine, where he is also the Director of the Masters programme in Energy, Finance and Carbon. He is the head of PREC, a leading research team on climate economics, and a member of the Council on Economics and Sustainable Development, a body advising the French Minister for Environment. At the request of the French Government, he was responsible for designing the French domestic offset program. His most recent book is Pricing Carbon (Cambridge University Press, 2010), co-edited with A. Denny Ellerman and Frank Convery.
