Climate change is one of the most significant challenges humanity faces, but economics can help us understand the problem and how to address it. These materials will address the science of climate change (by way of background), discuss the economic costs associated with climate change, present a set of policy options for mitigating these costs, and provide evidence on the real world experience with some of these policy tools.

Jon Haveman, CEO of the National Economic Education Delegation (NEED), a San Rafael nonprofit. Haveman is a man on a mission to make economic policy literacy relevant and real.
