Today’s Global Carbon Loss Index is 12.92 USD/tonne CO2. CLIX carbon pricing factors in the true cost of damage caused by CO2 emissions – past, present and future.
The US must both decarbonise (at less than $25/tonne CO2) and re-join the Paris Accord if the US economy is to survive this century. In our last blog we explained why the CBO is half right – the impact of climate change on the US economy in the coming decades may be relatively small. […]
In being half wrong, the CBO imperils the US economy. Climate change costs may be relatively small today but like the Boiled Frog Syndrome if and when the costs grow it will be too late to do anything. The Trump Administration should accept the climate science and start addressing the issue realistically. There need be […]
December 2018 – with populist riots against carbon taxation in France, and a weak agreement at COP24 in Poland, ESG-based Responsible Investment propositions can take the heat out of climate change and reap financial rewards too. Done well, Responsible Investment is a virtuous circle, rewarding investors for choosing corporations who are ESG (Environmental, Social […]
Using this simple equation, Dollar-based climate losses for Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru are compared with those for China and the US in Dollars per tonne CO2 – not just tonnes CO2 Financial metrics applied to economic scenarios are invaluable for assessing the risks associated with climate change at global, national and city […]
After the recent release of the 4th US National Climate Assessment, detailing climate change impact ‘will inflict substantial damages on US lives‘, our new financial impact focused report shows two thirds of all US GDP growth scenarios are predicted to be in serious decline by 2100 as a result of the effects of climate change. […]
New Global Climate Risk Map identifies, quantifies and puts Dollar figures on Climate Change Risk for 520 cities worldwide With international agreement on climate change policy still a distant dream, the need for individual cities to grasp the financial implications of their local vulnerability to the ravages of unabated global warming has never been so […]
An unprecedented 4% growth in GDP is the UK’s only hope for survival – but at what cost of decarbonisation? In our new modelling, we examine a full range of decarbonisation costs from $0-100 per tonne CO2. It shows the calamitous effect upon the UK of high decarbonisation costs and a failure to increase GDP […]
By 2100, two thirds of all US GDP growth scenarios are predicted to have collapsed or be in the process of collapse. For China, all scenarios grow. On 8th October 2018, Professors William Nordhaus and Paul Romer were awarded the Nobel Prize for their work on economic growth and climate change. The UN IPCC’s landmark […]
Its increasing deployment trend compares well with that of PAL’s correlation of extreme weather-related disasters and global warming – another evidence-based validation of PAL’s algorithm-based predictability.
