Videos on Carbon Pricing

I have just produced three short videos (around 10 minutes each) introducing carbon pricing.  More are planned.

The set can be watched here:



Regular readers of my blog will probably be familiar with most of the material but I hope they will be nevertheless be useful both as a refresher and a guide for people who are new to the area.

The three talks I’ve produced so far are:

1. An introduction to carbon pricing, which explains the idea of carbon pricing and looks at current using examples from practice around the world, both in summary and looking at the particular example of highly successful carbon pricing in the UK. This can be found here.

2. Types of carbon pricing, which looks at the merits of taxes and emissions trading systems, and looks in particular at hybrid systems, including California. This can be found here.

3. A more technical talk on the social cost of carbon, which includes some material that may be new even to those already quite familiar with climate change policy. It illustrates some of the difficulties of applying conventional economic concepts to a problem with as many dimensions as climate change, but concludes that they still have some value.  This can be found here.

The links together with supporting material (transcripts and slides) can be found on the tab at the top of this page labelled videos, or at this link.
