Deep Dialogue—4/29/24—The Social Cost of Carbon and Massachusetts Climate Policy

Posted on Apr 29, 2024 | Deep Dialogues and Expert Series

What is meant by the social cost of carbon?  Why is it needed and how is it calculated.  How has it been used in the U.S. in establishing federal policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?  How is it being used in Massachusetts to support our emissions targets?  What are the limitations of the social cost of carbon and are there alternative approaches that could be used?

Tony Rogers, Roy Harvey, and Roger Luckmann – climate activists and members of the ECA Mass research team explored this important but often overlooked topic at our April Deep Dialogue.  The video from the event is here and the slides for the presentation are here.
