I have pointed out elsewhere that the potential gains from carbon emissions are far from exhausted, given the low per capita rates in most parts of the world. Hence, even if global warming were not yet occurring, we would, other things being equal, expect it at some time in the future, as global emissions rise (Gardiner 2004). 34. These may amplify the direct warming by a factor of two or three (United Nations Environment Program 1999, sheet 7). 35. In particular, there is no reason to assume that our planet’s atmosphere is robustly stable in the face of different inputs.
One effect of this would be to introduce new and more widespread costs. For example, since the impacts are unpredictable, all prudent agents will insure against them, so that some will spend money on emergency services and ﬂood walls that they do not need. This contrasts with an abatement strategy, where the direct costs are incurred only by those responsible for excessive emissions. 56. Not only do we avoid the unnecessary costs mentioned above, but costs in the second case can be distributed in a rational fashion over the sources of the problem and may even generate revenue (through taxation or the price of permits), which could be used to alleviate the effects of warming to which we are already committed or for other socially beneﬁcial purposes.
1997, chap. 3. 41. Nordhaus claims that even the Kyoto controls are much too aggressive. For why this might be surprising, see the later discussion of the Kyoto Protocol. 25 42. Peter Singer adds that with global emissions trading, Lomborg’s own ﬁgures suggest that Kyoto would be a net economic beneﬁt (Singer 2002, p. 27). Lomborg’s argument, of course, is that even though this is true, the investment would be better placed elsewhere, in direct aid to poor countries (Lomborg 2001, p. 322). 43. It is worth noting that there is a serious paradox for at least some skeptics here.
