    This paper offers some thoughts on the value added of new economic estimates of climate change damages. We begin with a warning to beware of analyses that are so narrow that they miss a good deal of the important economic ramifications of the full suite of manifestations of climate change. Our...

    PAGE09 is an updated version of the PAGE2002 integrated assessment model (Hope ). The default PAGE09 model gives a mean estimate of the social cost of CO (SCCO) of $106 per tonne of CO, compared to $81 from the PAGE2002 model used in the Stern review (Stern ). The increase is the net result of...
