The drivers of peak warming in a consumption-maximizing world

Posted on 11th April 2016

Allen, M.R., (2016) Drivers of peak warming in a consumption-maximizing world. Nature Climate Change doi:10.1038/nclimate2977 Intro. Peak human-induced warming is primarily determined by cumulative CO2 emissions up to the time they are reduced to zero. In an idealized economically optimal scenario, warming continues until the social cost of carbon, which increases with both temperature and […]
