Who: This site is maintained by Steven Stoft of the Price Carbon Project. For years, I’ve been working with Axel Ockenfels, Peter Cramton and David MacKay, and we have recently published in Nature, the top science magazine. We also organized and published this group of papers in the journal Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy. This includes such papers by Nobel prize winners Joseph Stiglitz and Jean Tirole, as well as top climate-policy experts Martin Weitzman, William Nordhaus.
Mission: To provide background and links for the 2015 Paris climate conference, and to provide a look behind the publicity curtain what is really happening with regard to greenhouse gas emissions and changing the path of climate change.
This includes a theoretical analysis of the Paris “pledge and review” approach from the political-science and behavioral-economic perspective pioneered by Elinor Ostrom, and a review of the effectiveness of actual pledges.
