How can recalibrating models shape climate change mitigation?

[English version only] Simon Scheidegger is an Associate Professor of Economics at HEC Lausanne (UNIL) and E4S researcher. In this research snapshot, Prof. Scheidegger explores climate mitigation strategies.

Potential errors are revealed in a popular climate model, suggesting a recalibration that could significantly affect its forecasts. Additionally, their findings highlight how this adjustment alters estimates of the social cost of carbon.

The video, created by E4S, presents this research in a straightforward manner, offering valuable insights into climate economics and the forefront of climate change mitigation efforts.
