  • There is an overwhelming economic consensus on emissions reductions and pricing carbon (Howard and Sylvan, 2015)
  • Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) unrealistically show climate change only impacting percentage of future economic growth because that growth is baked into the models (Moore et al., 2015)
