56949-01 - Kolloquium: The Economics of Climate Change 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster Jedes Herbstsemester
Dozierende Rebecca Lordan-Perret (rebecca.lordan-perret@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt In this course, we focus on economic approaches to assessing climate change from a social welfare perspective. We begin with an overview of the scientific basis of climate change and its fundamental connection to economics. We then investigate the current methods used to price the externalities caused by greenhouse gas emissions, including methods to estimate the value of non-market goods (e.g., biodiversity and health) toward the estimation of the social cost of carbon. We discuss the intrinsic ethical meanings and implications of economic modeling choices; the sensitivity of economic results to functional form, underlying assumptions, and uncertainty; and the importance of economic results in informing climate policies globally.
Lernziele Students will develop an understanding of how economists try to translate the physical impacts of climate change into economic costs using integrated assessment models. By the end of the course, students should have deep understanding of the implications of various modeling assumptions and valuation techniques that enable them to think critically about the useful applications and limitations of these models for policymaking.
Literatur To be distributed in class.
Bemerkungen Use of electronic devices not permitted during course time (this includes taking notes on tablets, laptops, etc). This course is designed to be interactive and discussion-based; electronic devices in this setting have little use and, in fact, typically hinder participation and attention. Please understand that no exceptions can be made for the sake of fairness.
