Expert Economists on Climate Change and the need to act


From treehugger

“The excellent Climate Consensus blog over at The Guardian just reported on some interesting research based on a survey of expert climate economists.

The result?

Of those economists who had actually engaged substantively with the issue of climate change—meaning they had published on the topic in highly regarded, peer reviewed journals—a full 95 percent of them argue that the United States should follow through on its commitment to cut carbon emissions. Furthermore, 77 percent believed we should cut carbon emissions unilaterally—whether or not other countries commit to cutting theirs.”
