When analyzing the impacts of various regulations, such as those aimed at vehicle and power plant emissions, government agencies use the social cost of carbon (SCC)—an estimate, in dollars, of the net damages incurred by society from a 1 metric ton increase in carbon dioxide emissions in a given year. At the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis conference in Washington, D.C., March 16, faculty fellow Billy Pizer will serve as a panelist for a discussion of approaches to updating that cost. He will present recommendations of a new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for short- and long-term improvements to the SCC calculation.

In Paris, world leaders signed an unprecedented climate agreement to limit temperature rise to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-industrial levels by 2100. On February 1, Duke faculty and students who attended the climate change conference will reflect on the significance of the new climate accord, what we can expect from it, and how the Duke community was involved in the conversation.
