How Much Did The Paris Agreement Cost

at 2 °C, a further limitation of warming to well below 2 °C is economically optimal. Regardless of the precise ECS, optimal reduction efforts promise a significant reduction in damage compared to the construction scenario (~14% for 4°C ECS, ~10% for 2.9°C ECS and ~8% for 2°C ECS). As stated in the Paris Agreement, these efforts are ambitious (Article 3)1 and include very strict measures from the outset (Figure 2c). Before iteration, we solve the model without climate costs to maintain the investment rate (s_t {{mathrm{nocc}}), which is optimal without climate change. On the jobs bill, the clean energy sector already employs more than 3 million Americans — 14 times the number of people employed in the coal, gas, oil and other fossil fuel industries — and has the potential to continue to invest more in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and grid upgrades to replace aging coal-fired infrastructure. The implementation of the Clean Power Plan alone could create more than half a million new jobs by 2030. Meanwhile, coal jobs are not so much "offshored from America" – another trump claim – but they are falling victim to market forces due to falling prices for renewables and natural gas. These rules of transparency and accountability are similar to those adopted in other international agreements. While the system does not carry financial penalties, the requirements are aimed at easily tracking the progress of individual nations and promoting a sense of overall group pressure, which discourages any hesitation between countries that might take this into account....
