Marginal abatement costs of greenhouse gas emissions: A meta-analysis

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we carry out a meta-analysis of recent studies into the costs of greenhouse gas mitigation policies that aim at the long-term stabilisation of these gases in the atmosphere. We find the cost estimates of the studies to be sensitive to the stringency of the stabilisation target, the assumed emissions baseline, the way in which the time profile of emissions is determined in the model, the choice of control variable (CO
