Projecting Climate Damages
RFF Academic Seminar
Presenter
Derek Lemoine, Assistant Professor of Economics,
University of Arizona
Abstract
We develop a top-down approach to estimating market damages from climate change. This new approach combines damages from altering average temperature and precipitation and damages from changing the variance of temperature and precipitation. We obtain the regional distribution of each type of damages as a function of global mean surface temperature. The results demonstrate the importance of assumptions about regional income growth and the importance of the weighting scheme used to aggregate regional impacts into a global damage function.
