UAS Faculty Presents "The Economics of Climate Change"
Britteny A. Cioni presents in the Science for Alaska Lecture Series
Britteny A. Cioni, Term Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Alaska Southeast, presented the Economics of Climate Change in the Science for Alaska Lecture Series. According to Cioni, climate change is the greatest market failure to date. Climate change presents interesting issues for economists because of the uncertainties, time scale and international scope of the issue. The presentation reviewed the latest research concerning the economic costs and benefits of climate change, market failures and policy options. The free lecture series was sponsored and hosted by the Geophysical Institute at the University of Fairbanks. The Economics of Climate Change lecture was presented in Anchorage on January 20, 2008 and in Fairbanks on February 12, 2008. A webcast of the Fairbanks lecture is available.
