Papers on Climate Economics


Work in Progress

  • “The Social Cost of Carbon from Theory to Trump”. (Draft available here.)
  • “Prescriptivism, Risk Aversion, and Intertemporal Substitution in Climate Economics” (with Gernot Wagner). (Draft available here.)

Outmoded Work

(My first paper on climate economics contained a serious mistake, but I list it here to complete the record and to help others understand the mistake, which many other philosophers also make. The nature of this mistake is more fully explored in “Pure Time Preference in Intertemporal Welfare economics,” listed above.)
