The climate casino : risk, uncertainty, and economics for a warming world by William D Nordhaus( Book )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is profoundly altering our world in ways that pose major risks to human societies and natural systems. We have entered the Climate Casino and are rolling the global-warming dice, warns economist William Nordhaus. But there is still time to turn around and walk back out of the casino, and in this essential book the author explains how. Bringing together all the important issues surrounding the climate debate, Nordhaus describes the science, economics, and politics involved--and the steps necessary to reduce the perils of global warming. Using language accessible to any concerned citizen and taking care to present different points of view fairly, he discusses the problem from start to finish: from the beginning, where warming originates in our personal energy use, to the end, where societies employ regulations or taxes or subsidies to slow the emissions of gases responsible for climate change. Nordhaus offers a new analysis of why earlier policies, such as the Kyoto Protocol, failed to slow carbon dioxide emissions, how new approaches can succeed, and which policy tools will most effectively reduce emissions. In short, he clarifies a defining problem of our times and lays out the next critical steps for slowing the trajectory of global warming
A question of balance : weighing the options on global warming policies by William D Nordhaus( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As scientific and observational evidence on global warming piles up every day, questions of economic policy in this critical environmental topic have taken center stage. But as author and prominent Yale economist William Nordhaus observes, the issues involved in understanding global warming and slowing its harmful effects are complex and cross disciplinary boundaries. For example, ecologists see global warming as a threat to ecosystems, utilities as a debit to their balance sheets, and farmers as a hazard to their livelihoods." "In this important work, William Nordhaus integrates the entire spectrum of economic and scientific research to weigh the costs of reducing emissions against the benefits of reducing the long-run damages from global warming. The book offers one of the most extensive dynamic analyses of greenhouse-gas emissions and climate change and provides the tools to evaluate alternative approaches to slowing global warming."--Jacket

"In order to really see the forest, what's the best way to count the trees? Understanding how the economy interacts with the environment has important implications for policy, regulatory, and business decisions. How should our national economic accounts recognize the increasing interest in and importance of the environment?" "Nature's Numbers responds to concerns about how the United States should make these measurements. This book recommends how to incorporate environmental and other non-market measures into the nation's income and product accounts."--BOOK JACKET

Economics and policy issues in climate change by William D Nordhaus( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global climate change has emerged as one of the most challenging and controversial policy issues. Ìn this volume, a group of scholars e×amines economic and social aspects of the far-reaching phenomenon. Although the 1997 "summit" in Kyoto focused world attention on climate, it was just one step in an ongoing process. Research by the UN's Ìntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (ÌPCC) has been ongoing since 1988. An e×tensive ÌPCC Working Group report published in 1995 e×amined the economic and social aspects of climate change. Ìn this volume, economists assess the ÌPCC report and address the questions which emerge. The result is a look at the actual realities of climate change and some methods (and difficulties) of dealing with them
A new architecture for the U.S. national accounts by Dale W Jorgenson( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A New Architecture for the U.S. National Accounts" brings together a distinguished group of contributors to initiate the development of a comprehensive and fully integrated set of United States national accounts. The purpose of the new architecture is not only to integrate the existing systems of accounts, but also to identify gaps and inconsistencies and expand and incorporate systems of nonmarket accounts with the core system. Since the United States economy accounts for almost thirty percent of the world economy, it is not surprising that accounting for this huge and diverse set of economic activities requires a decentralized statistical system. This volume outlines the major assignments among institutions that include the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Department of Labor, the Census Bureau, and the Governors of the Federal Reserve System. An important part of the motivation for the new architecture is to integrate the different components and make them consistent. This volume is the first step toward achieving that goal

Renowned economist William Nordhaus has developed many innovative approaches for analyzing complex environmental questions. He applies them to the possible phaseout of nuclear power in Sweden in The Swedish Nuclear Dilemma: Energy and the Environment. While making a major contribution to that debate, this book has value that extends well beyond the Swedish issue, to the careful and well-informed consideration of environmental and energy questions that industrialized nations and developing regions now face. It is essential for anyone interested in nuclear-power issues and climate change. The Sw
