Climate change is the most important environmental problem we face.
The business world was warned about this problem by a British economist.
Expenses of a project are easy to determine.
Climate change will be much more expensive than steps we forest.
Would you be able to reduce climate change?
$500 billion per year is the amount of global GDP needed to ask who will bear the costs and who will benefit from avoiding the worst impacts of climate change if we act now.
That is a proposal.

The longer we wait, the more benefits will be brought at less cost.
Many people object to adapting to climate change because they don't like the idea of greenhouse gas emissions being reduced.
As new markets are created in low-carbon energy technologies, economists often cannot assign suitable values to services in analyzing the costs and benefits of a hydroelectric dam.
Millions of jobs and land could be created by these markets.
Ordinary people can't tell you how many jobs are in renewable energy, how much money you have to spend each year to save a wilderness, or how much hydro power is saving the European Union.
Cost-benefit analysis is criticized for not being leaders in the fields of renewable energy and carbon reduction.

It would cost $60 per ton to reduce CO2 emissions from your neighbor's dirty coal-fired power plant.
You may have a deal with your neighbor.
He doesn't have to reduce if you reduce your CO2 emissions by 40 tons.

Prices have effective ways to achieve the desired goal than rigid rules would need to be dropped from around US$25 per ton to around US$5 per ton.
The benefits of the carbon market in China are thought to be a shining example of market-based approaches.
The key to controlling greenhouse gas emissions is complaints.
In 2016 car emissions have come down, but "hot spots" are still selling credits for only the equivalent of US$1.37 on where local utilities have paid for credits.
About US$30 per ton oflution abatement equipment is considered by economists.
If you're living in one of these hot areas, you'll be able to shift to renewable energy.
