|Title||Do pandemics change the calculus in climate policy?|
The likelihood of pandemics such as COVID-19 may be linked to climate change. This might change the damage cost estimates for climate change as captured by the social cost of carbon and hence the desirable stringency of greenhouse gas emission reductions and increases in the global average temperature.
