Monday, April 13, 2020. 12:15PM. The Green Liberal Dilemma in Climate Policy. Marc Fleurbaey, Princeton University. Sponsored by Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment and Princeton Environmental Institute. More information here.
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?
