Carlin, A. (2011), ‘A Multidisciplinary, Science-Based Approach to the Economics of Climate Change’

Carlin, A. (2011), ‘A Multidisciplinary, Science-Based Approach to the Economics of Climate Change’, IJERPH, 8/4: 985–1031.

"Economic analyses of environmental mitigation and other interdisciplinary public policy issues can be much more useful if they critically examine what other disciplines have to say, insist on using the most relevant observational data and the scientific method, and examine lower cost alternatives to the change proposed. These general principles are illustrated by applying them to the case of climate change mitigation, one of the most interdisciplinary of public policy issues. [...] The risk of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming appears to be so low that it is not currently worth doing anything to try to control it, including geoengineering."
