A Carbon Calculation: How Many Deaths Do Emissions Cause?
RFF Senior Fellow Maureen Cropper comments on a new paper that estimates future lives lost due to climate change.
Maureen Cropper, senior fellow at Resources for the Future, a nonpartisan environmental research organization in Washington, suggested that Mr. Bressler’s $258 estimate appeared to be too high, in part because of the way that the paper looks at how people around the world view the value of their own lives. She added that “although one may disagree with some of the author’s assumptions, it is important for researchers to continue the effort.”
