Event Description

TIPL Teleconference                             6pm ct / 7pm et Wed. July 19     Register Here

The social cost of carbon is an estimate of the monetized damages caused by a one-ton increase in greenhouse gas emissions in a given year. To set that dollar amount requires understanding the effect of a ton of a greenhouse gas on global temperatures; the effect of temperature change on agricultural yields, human health, flood risk, and myriad other harms to the ecosystem; monetizing these various damages into dollar terms; and determining how much to balance harm to future generations against the interests of the current generation.

The social cost of carbon (SCC) has been called “the most important number you’ve never heard of” because it underpins climate regulations in many countries, including the US. You personally can use it to “pay” for your own carbon footprint.

You must register to join this teleconference.  Participants will receive a Social Cost of Carbon study guide and worksheet.  Register now!
