The Behavioral Economics of Climate Change: Adaptation Behaviors, Global Public Goods, Breakthrough Technologies, and Policy-Making shows readers how to understand mitigation strategies emerging from global warming policy discussions and the ways that changing climate conditions can alter these strategies. Through quantitative analyses, case studies and policy examples, this bottom-up approach to climate change economics gives readers the tools to create effective responses to global warming. This self-contained book on the topic covers key scientific and economic subjects in an applied, innovative and immediately relevant fashion.
- Unravels individual behaviors and national policies about global warming by evaluating their evolving motives and incentives
- Provides an economic analysis of the ways individuals makes decisions when faced with climate change
- Details a full range of alternative economic and policy responses, placing them in an integrated conceptual and policy framework
