Dartmouth PhD student Christopher Callahan presents on recent research as part of the New Energy: Conversations with Early-Career Energy Researchers series. Dartmouth Professor of Environmental Studies Richard Howarth moderates.
Understanding the economic impacts of climate change is essential to designing climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, but the magnitudes and mechanisms of these impacts are poorly constrained, as are the contributions of individual actors to these impacts. In this talk, Callahan will discuss his research understanding and quantifying the economic growth impacts of extreme climate events, isolating the roles of individual emitters in contributing to historical climate damages using simple climate model simulations, and illustrating coupled feedbacks between climate adaptation and global warming. Collectively, this work aims to build a fuller understanding of the coupled climate-economy system in a warming world.
