symposium on the social cost of carbon is organized by Professor Raymond Pierrehumbert

Stockholm Symposium on the Social Cost of Carbon 25-27 May

Human-caused emission of carbon dioxide poses a grave threat to current and future generations, and one of the most effective ways to deal with the problem is to impose a price on the emission of carbon dioxide by one means or another. This symposium brings together experts working across a spectrum of areas, and seeks in particular to stimulate productive exchanges across the boundaries of physical, biological and social sciences. The meeting is open to the public. Registration is closed, but walk-in attendance is welcome on a space-available basis!
