Comment: Cambridge University Press 2004 softcover, 331 pages. Actually new and unused. I consider the book to be in excellent condition, but despite this it is stamped "DAMAGED" inside. I have looked carefully through the book and assume this must relate to the small creases to a couple of corners of the cover.

Product description

Book Description

This book applies advanced new economics methodologies to assess possible impacts of climate change on the US economy: agriculture, timber, coastal resources, energy expenditure, fishing, outdoor recreation. It improves our understanding of key issues raised in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, and will serve as an important reference for the scientific, economic, and policy community.

Synopsis

Understanding the impacts of climate change on economic behaviour is an important aspect of deciding when to take policy actions to prevent or mitigate its consequences. This book applies advanced new economics methodologies to assess impacts on potentially vulnerable aspects of the US economy: agriculture, timber, coastal resources, energy expenditure, fishing, outdoor recreation. It is intended to provide improved understanding of key issues raised in the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. It concludes that some climate change may produce economic gains in the agriculture and forestry sectors, whereas energy, coastal structures, and water sectors may be harmed. The book will serve as an important reference for the scientific, economic, and policy community, and will also be of interest to natural resource/environmental economists as an example of economic valuation techniques. The volume will clearly be of main importance to researchers and policymakers in the US, but will also be influential as a model for assessment of impacts on economies worldwide.
